One of the great features in Office Outlook 2010 is the social feature, aka the People Pane. While the People Pane does look very promising (IE: Tracks Social Activities from RSS Feeds, Twitter <enter social network here>, Recent Conversations, Status updates, Calendar Items, Attachments etc… from the selected contact), being that the product is in Beta and not fully working it really does take up A LOT of room especially if you’ve enabled the preview pane. With that in mind, let’s get rid of it!
Who knows, perhaps when a few of the social networking plug-ins become available for Outlook 2010 the people pane will be more useful.
Until then, if minimizing the People Pane isn’t good enough (just Click the Down arrow on the right-side of it) you always have the option to disable it completely.
Wow what a space hog, lets disable it!
How To Remove The Annoying People Pane From Outlook 2010 Emails
1. Click the View tab, then Click the People Pane button. From the People Pane menu, Click the Off option.
Viola, that was a simple solution and one more annoyance marked off the list! We can always come back later and re-enable it if we decide to use the Outlook 2010 People Pane.
