windows 10 mail spacing option

Microsoft added a very interesting and useful new feature to the Windows 10 Mail client. As many users already noticed, you can now adjust the amount of space between elements and squeeze all the information you need in as little space as possible.

There are three options available:

  • Spacious – which is the default spacing
  • Medium – reduce spacing by around 25%
  • Compact for minimum whitespace.

You can change the spacing by going to Settings > Personalization > Folder and message spacing. Windows 10 Mail users really like this new option and many even suggested that Microsoft should make it available to all Windows components. As far as user feedback is concerned, some users wish the Compact option was even smaller that it already is:

nice, finally an update that actually means something to me. Compact still is too big IMO, not enough of a difference between the 3. but its a start.

On the other hand, other users prefer the Medium option as Compact is too cluttered for them:

Small feature, but much appreciated. The message lists took up far too much real estate before; it reminded me of some oversize child’s app. Compact looks a little cluttered for me at the moment, but medium is perfecto.

If this new option is not available on your computer, try restarting your mail client and make sure that you’re running the latest app version which is 17.9126.21785.0. If it still won’t work, change some settings quickly, then restart your mail client and you should now be able to use the new option.
