The new Outlook.com

I would like to be able to see more messages at a glance in my inbox

Each upgrade of Outlook seems to have the side effect (I assume it's a side effect and not intentional because that would appear to be stupid) of reducing the number of emails I can see at a glance in my inbox. This greatly reduces its functionality for me. Why have so much unused space?
Like many people on this site, I also object to being forced to accept this change (and all the regular changes, it seems, for change's sake) without being asked or given an alternative.

    I agree - I have had this email address since 1999, so I don't want to change it, but I am considering making a rule to forward all incoming emails to another account so I can read them without a struggle.

    I totally agree. With the latest change, I no longer even want to use this account it is so irritating. A third of my screen is taken up with ads so that I can't see more than 4 emails at a time.

    Agreed. Make each email line less tall and have text fill the line more fully.
    I'm having to zoom out the screen to 80 or 90% to see the same number of emails that I could in the former version but unfortunately this also reduces the font size.
