The Mail and Calendar applications that come with Windows 10 are designed to make your life more efficient.

Most adults who use computers are now using email. You can always get access to your email by heading to the nearest web browser, opening it, and then heading to the website of the company whose mail you are a subscriber. For instance, if you’ve got an Outlook email then you can head to Outlook and sign it to see your emails from there (the same goes for Yahoo and all other companies).

The Calendar app is useful in much the same way: you don’t have to head to a website to check out what’s coming up in your life, and you can even get notifications coming in directly to your desktop when an event that is marked in your Calendar has come around. For example, if a friend’s birthday is marked on your Calendar, then you will get a notification when that date comes around without having opened the Mail app.

Where the Calendar app still has some work to do—it’s difficult to work out how to remove occasions from the calendar if you don’t want them seen—the Mail app really shines: it’s not only quicker to get to your emails directly from the Start menu, but the features you get are top-notch, too.

The following tutorial demonstrates how to add and remove the folders from the Favorites section of the default Mail app in Windows 10 when you’re using a version of the Windows 10 operating system.

How to Add or Remove Folders from Favorites in Windows 10 Mail App

Here is how you can add or remove folders from the Favorites section that is available in the default Mail app that you get with Windows 10:

Open the Mail application and then select the email account you want to add or remove as a Favorite under the Accounts section from the menu. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

Older versions of Windows 10 show a lighter blue color over the account when it’s selected while newer versions show a white bar to the left side of it. In the picture below, for example, it is the Gmail account that is selected.

Click on the All folders icon from the Mail app’s left side menu and then right-click on the account name. If the account isn’t added to Favorites yet, then you can select the Add to Favorites option from the menu. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

Click on the All folders icon from the Mail app’s left side menu and then right-click on the account name. If the account is already added to the Favorites, then you can click on the Remove from Favorites option from the menu. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

That’s all.
