Yahoo! Mail may not be the best webmail service out there but it still has a ton of users. Just a week ago, we let you know about the availability of the official Yahoo! Mail app for Microsoft’s latest Windows 8 operating system.
The initial version of Yahoo! Mail comes with a good interface and all the basic features that you would need. By installing and adding your Yahoo! account, you could easily read latest messages and also send messages without having to open your web browser!
One of our readers, recently left a comment on our Yahoo! Mail app for Windows 8 article asking how to sign out or log out of the account in Yahoo! Mail app. If you too have installed Yahoo! Mail app in Windows 8 and are looking for the sign out option in the app, you need to follow steps given in this article.
Signing out of your Yahoo! account in Yahoo! Mail is fairly simple. Just like the native Mail app, Yahoo! Mail doesn’t display the sign out option by default and you need to access the same by opening the settings Charm. Complete the given below instructions to sign out your Yahoo! account in Yahoo! Mail app for Windows 8.
Step 1: Launch Yahoo! Mail app.
Step 2: Once the app is launched, move the mouse cursor to the upper or lower right corner of the screen to view the Charms bar. And if you’re on a touch device, simply swipe in from the right-edge of the screen to reveal the Charms bar.
Step 3: Click on Settings charm and then click Sign Out option to sign out of the account. That’s it!
And if you don’t like the official Yahoo! Mail app, we suggest you try out the Mail app that ships with Windows 8. The Mail app is pretty good and lets you add and configure your Hotmail, Gmail (see how to add Gmail to Mail app), and Yahoo! webmail accounts in a few steps.
