Of late, we have shared a couple of useful tips for Windows 10 users who are using the built-in Mail app. First, we talked about resetting the Mail app, and then we discussed updating the email account password in the Mail app.
If you have been using the default Mail app as your primary email client in Windows 10, you likely have added multiple email accounts to the Mail app. As you know, with default settings, the Mail app tile in the Start menu displays the latest email messages, but many users prefer pinning individual email accounts to the Start menu instead of pinning just the Mail app, which shows the latest emails from all added accounts.
In this guide, we will see how to pin individual or all email accounts to the Start menu so that you can have a glance at all the latest messages from all email accounts right from the Start menu.
Pinning individual email accounts or pinning all email accounts to the Start menu is quite easy. Complete the given below instructions to pin individual email accounts or all email accounts to the Start menu.
Pin email accounts to Start menu
Step 1: Open the Mail app.
Step 2: In the left pane of the Mailbox, you will see all email accounts added to the Mail app. If you can’t see email accounts, click the Menu icon (see picture below).
Step 3: To pin an email account to the Start, in the left pane, right-click on the email account that you want to pin to the Start, and then click Pin to Start option.
Step 4: When you see the following confirmation dialog with “Do you want to pin this tile to Start?” message, click Yes button to pin the account to the Start. That’s it! You can repeat these steps to pin any number of email accounts to the Start menu.
By default, medium size tile will appear at the bottom of the Start menu. You can resize it to make wide or large tile by right-clicking on it, clicking Resize, and then choosing either Wide or Large option. As you likely know, you can move the tile anywhere on the right side of the Start.
Once an email account is pinned to the Start menu, it should display the latest messages from your account. If not, please right-click on it, click More and then click Turn live tile on option.
If you want to pin multiple email accounts, you need to right-click on each email account and then click the Pin to Start option.
