Lehigh Gmail is highly configurable -- if there is a feature you don't like, there is a good chance you can change it! One good example is the Gmail Compose window. By default, when you compose a new message, the Compose window is "docked" in the lower right hand corner of the screen. However, you can change this if you don't like it.
Full-screen view expands the Compose window to display in a larger window and in the center of your screen. To go full-screen one time:
- Click Compose to compose a message.
- Click on the "double-arrow" in the upper right-hand corner of the Compose window to go "full screen."
- To return to the docked view, click on the double-arrow (now the arrows point inward).
To make full-screen your default Compose view:
- While in the Compose window, click on the upside-down arrow in the lower right corner (shown right as yellow highlighted "1").
- In the window that opens up, select Default to full-screen(shown right as yellow highlighted "2")..
POP-OUT WINDOW VIEW
It's also possible to "pop-out" the Compose window into its own, movable window.
To do this on a one-time basis:
- Click Compose to compose a new message.
- In the upper-right-hand corner of the Compose window, locate the diagonal double-ended arrow (see image on right).
- Hold down the Shift key and click on the double-ended arrow.
- The Compose window will "undock," or open to a pop-out window that can be moved and/or resized.
- To redock the window, click on the one-ended arrow in the upper-right corner of the pop-out window.
