This article describes how to display a horizontal scroll bar for any of the table views.

More information

In the table view of any Outlook folder, you can change the widths of the columns; however, the columns must fit on the screen. There is no horizontal scroll bar or an option to increase column width so that some of them expand to the right of the screen. To have the columns retain their width and expand to the right of the screen, you must enable a horizontal scroll bar.

To Display a Horizontal Scroll Bar

Follow these steps to display the horizontal scroll bar:

  1. On the View menu, point to Current View, and click Customize Current View.
  2. Click Other Settings, and click to clear the Automatic Column Sizing check box. Click OK and OK.
Now, if you size a column wider than will fit on the screen, you can scroll to the right. The Automatic Column Sizing option is unique to the folder that you have open when you change the setting.
