I have started using split screen using "Preview Pane" in Gmail which is a new feature in Gmail (according to me).

How to close opened mail ?

Suppose I have clicked on a mail, that mail will be opened below mail list. I am not able to close that mail.

I want the screen as follows. Currently I am refreshing entire page to get such result.

  • The mode is called Preview Pane for anyone who wants to have a look at it. Also I couldnt find a way de-select a message other than refreshing the page. – Matt Aug 12 '11 at 12:24

You have to enable keyboard shortcuts.

If you have the feature enabled, after you previewed an email, to "close" the preview, click u.

    10 years later and this is still useful - gets the "refresh" button back after you preview a mail, which I need to tell gmail to fetch from a POP server, nice! – CupawnTae Mar 18 at 13:55
