1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    I have windows 10. I also have Outlook 13 which I use all day long for work. I prefer to open the email and not just view and respond from the side panel. However, when I close the email, I am automatically returned to what I think is referred to as "my desktop", where I can click the Outlook icon again to return to mail. Problem is, when doing so I'm actually opening another instance of Outlook. Reading/responding to 10 emails gives me 10 instances of Outlook.

    This problem is not exclusive to Outlook, just the best way I could explain the problem. Anytime I close a Window, I return to the desktop. For example, in Word when I close a document, I return to the desktop but would rather go back to the Word application.

    Is there a setting I can change or is this by design? Thank you!
