"Pane View" in Gmail

If you prefer to view Gmail messages in a 'preview pane' (like the picture below):

  1. Click the Gear in the upper right corner to reveal the Settings option. Click that Settings option.
  2. On the next screen, choose the 'Labs' tab at the top.
  3. Search for Preview Pane in the search box. Once you see it, click the Enable button.

In the upper right, to the left of your gear, will be a button that shifts back and forth between regular view and pane view, to easily turn it on and off.

You can also view your inbox and Pane vertically.
