Whenever I create a new message, the associated window is really small and in an inconvenient location (half off of my Desktop).
How do I change the default size and position of the new message window such that all of it is visible on my desktop?
Create a new message and resize and position it accordingly. Then hold CTRL when pressing the X in the upper right corner of the window to close it.
This should force saving the location and size of the window.
Note: This tip in not limited to Outlook or the message window but works for pretty much all Windows applications.
