Is there a way to open a new Outlook (2010) window (for any folder, such as messages, contacts, tasks, etc) so that the navigation pane on the left hand side is not open?

It's possible with VBA. Copy this to the ThisOutlookSession module:
Private WithEvents m_Explorers As Outlook.Explorers
Private Sub Application_Startup()
  Set m_Explorers = Application.Explorers
End Sub
Private Sub m_Explorers_NewExplorer(ByVal Explorer As Explorer)
  If Application.Explorers.Count > 1 Then
    Explorer.ShowPane olNavigationPane, False
  End If
End Sub
