Using a second window allows you to view screens side-by-side rather than shuffling layered windows.
When to use
Anytime you need to reference information (like emails) in order to make decisions (like calendar time), it is a good idea to view the two windows side-by-side.
Float your mouse over the top of the Calendar icon on the Peek Pane located at the bottom of the Navigation pane.
- Right click the Calendar icon
- Click the option “Open in New Window”
If you have a second monitor, simply slide the calendar screen onto the second monitor and now happily view your email beside your calendar with no shuffle effect happening.
If you have a single monitor, you will have the option to either resize both windows manually (Windows 7) or snap each window to the right or left sides (Windows 8 and 10).
To reset to one window, close the 2nd window with the X in the upper right hand corner.
