GnusWindowLayout

Copy and Paste from the Gnus FAQ

I don’t like the layout of summary and article buffer, how to change it? Perhaps even a three pane display?

You can control the windows configuration by calling the function gnus-add-configuration. The syntax is a bit complicated but explained very well in the EmacsManual InfoMode node “Window Layout”. Some popular examples:

(gnus-add-configuration '(article (vertical 1.0 (summary .35 point) (article 1.0))))
(gnus-add-configuration
 '(article
   (horizontal 1.0
	       (vertical 25
			 (group 1.0))
	       (vertical 1.0
			 (summary 0.25 point)
			 (article 1.0)))))
(gnus-add-configuration
 '(summary
   (horizontal 1.0
	       (vertical 25
			 (group 1.0))
	       (vertical 1.0
			 (summary 1.0 point)))))

Put the above code in your .gnus.el file.

Note that the first symbol in each configuration is a key indicating when the configuration should be applied. See the ‘gnus-buffer-configuration’ variable for a list of all possible window config keys. Here are the main ones that you may want to alter:
