Microsoft Outlook – Reading Pane

For months now I have been driven insane by my Outlook…for some reason the Reading Pane had decided to give up the ghost, for no apparent reason whatsoever.  I kept looking in the ‘Customise Current View’ section of my inbox, but there is was, still set to ‘Bottom’.  Very frustrating.  So I decided to search for a solution.

Hidden away in the Help of Outlook is a section called ‘Disabled Items’, and there is was sitting there, as if looking at me in a cheeky way…I selected it, clicked ‘Enable’ & ‘Close’, restarted Outlook, and, hey presto, my Reading Pane was back.

Happy days 🙂
