What does Вы mean when it comes at the beginning of the verb? like in выглядывать and высматривать.

    In выглядывать it means "out", in высматривать - to perform thoroughly the action expressed by the stem verb.
    Besides, вы- may express completed action (вылечить, выучить) and performing the action during long time (высидеть, вытерпеть).
