Changing main pane appearance
There are a number of ways you can customize the appearance of the main pane. The way you see the pane the next time you open it depends on the permissions your administrator has given you for the container.
If you have permission to save changes
If you have permission to save changes to the container's appearance, your changes are saved, and you will see your customized view the next time you open this container. Other users will also see your customized view.
If you don't have permission to save changes
If you don't have permission to save changes to the container's appearance, you will see the default appearance for this container the next time you open it. The only exceptions involve changes to list view and the reading pane.



Using split bars to define window panes
The main pane can consist of subpanes divided by a split bar. The split bar between panes can be horizontal or vertical. It can also be located at the top, bottom, left, or right of the main pane. You can move a split bar to change pane widths or hide one pane behind another.


To
Do this
