Under the Messages tab you can manually add a new item to the queue or click the View top item link to view the topmost item/message in the queue. However, since items may be consumed any time and since SQS moreover is non-deterministic, you cannot assume that the item you are seeing is indeed the next one to be consumed. It's main purpose is to give you a quick sample of a message in the queue.
