    Hi, I have a 4k screen and when I "Open in new window" to open a secondary window, such as a calendar the new window opens as a small window in the top left quarter of the screen. It seems that the new window size is a fixed number suitable for a 1k screen when it should be adaptive to the screen size.
    I contacted support and Kakir, suggested deleting the Frame, and if it exists the Namespace, values under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Office Explorer
    I found the Frame entry in the registry as suggested and deleting this only reset the default start-up location of the main Outlook window and did *not* change the size of the secondary "Open new window" windows.
    This is an annoying “feature” that that needs to be fixed as it basically renders the "Open in new window" useless on 4k screens as the user must resize the window to use it. Please make a change so that the opening size adapts to the window size. This need only happen the first time the "Open in new window" feature is used after the “defaults” are set in registry these values can be used in the future.
