Use Full Screen view to manage your inbox

With new full-screen support, Outlook 2016 for Mac helps you manage multiple email messages more easily. The current message—the one you're reading or composing—gets full focus, while others await your attention in the tray at the bottom of your screen. And your inbox remains visible at all times so you can switch back and forth as often as you need to.
