Outlook - Mail View - How to DISABLE Maximise

MarkBROW91 asked
Last Modified: 2018-05-08
I have Outlook 2010 and a wide screen monitor. I can configure my screen so that I have Outlook open on 1/2 of the screen, and another app open (i.e. Internet Explorer), utilising the other 1/2 of the screen (a 50:50 split). When I click on an email (from my inbox) however, the email opens up and Maximises across the entire screen (and in doing so, obscures Internet Explorer). What settings can I change so that the viewed email only takes up 1/2 screen (the same as the outlook instance).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
