Hide or Show Preview of Text in Message List of Windows 10 Mail app

The Mail and Calendar apps included with Windows 10 help you stay up to date on your email, manage your schedule and stay in touch with people you care about the most. Designed for both work and home, these apps help you communicate quickly and focus on what’s important across all your accounts. Supports Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo! and other popular accounts.

By default, the Mail app displays the subject line and first line of each email message in the preview pane. If you don't want the message preview text (first line) to show in the preview pane, you can turn it off to only have the subject line show for each email instead.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off show preview text of messages in the Mail app for your account in Windows 10.
