Here’s how to use the Reading Pane and Spacebar in Outlook to sort through your daily emails more quickly:

  • In Outlook, select “View” and “Reading Pane.”
  • Select the Reading Pane to sit on the right-hand side.
  • Select the top email in your inbox.
  • Press the Spacebar so that Reading Pane will scroll down to reveal the lower section of your email and email chain.
  • When you have reached the bottom of the email, the Spacebar will then take you to the next email in your inbox.
  • Use the “Delete” key as you go through to remove emails that don’t need to be actioned.
  • Use the Spacebar rather than the mouse to go through your remaining emails.
