    It was meant for the Surface not a desktop. Firefox and Chrome are a lot more safer than the stuff that Microsoft dreams up. Even their Mail and Calendar App does not work when you try and sync with a @me.com account.
    I agree. I went to Outlook mail because it works. Gmail is the so called best yet I cannot get it to sync. Id I could sync Gmail I may move to Firefox. Any suggestions?

    Rather obvious I am not on your expertise level.
    How about an answer to this simple question "Should no longer needed icons pined to the task bar be unpinned, removed or deleted? If these applications are needed in the future how do I retrieve the icons for the task bar?" Please explain in simple terms that I can more readily understand.

    Thank you,

    Nothing expert about it. It is basic computing 101 stuff.

    Outlook mail has been having problems with users getting locked out because they forget to set a additional email account for recovery in case they forget their password, same as putting in your cellphone number. Gmail interface may not be as pretty or glossy as Outlook.com is, which again is cosmetic and has nothing to do with how the service works.

    I have my gmail set to forward to my @att.net account, same as my @me.com account for iCloud. I would choose Thunderbird over Outlook for the desktop if all that you are doing is sending and receiving email. If you are on the go, using the webmail interface is fine and dandy, but not as safe as having the email scanned for attachments that snuck through with malware in them, along with links that could point you to a website that is trying to Phish your info or cause you to catch a virus on your computer.

    Going back to your original question, you are talking about cosmetic stuff that can be cleaned up if you use Classic Shell or Start10 to bring the Windows 10 desktop back to how the Windows 7 desktop All Programs worked. This is all basic 101 computing stuff.

    Also we can only point out things on here, not actually get on your computer and do it, nor do we want to have someone so dependent on the boards, that they do not get out of their comfort zone and find out how to make their computer work better and make Windows safer and a better experience that you are not doing twice the work to get one simple task done.

    When I setup an email program on someone's computer, whether it is Windows, Linux, a Macbook running Mac OS-X, a tablet running iOS or Android OS. I set the email account to leave all emails on server and not to delete them until 14 days or longer, in case they accidentally erase one and have to get it back.

    Setting up Outlook.com for a desktop program like Thunderbird Email, you would use the Exchange settings for manual setup if the program does not pull the settings from Mozilla's database.

    In the end the more information that you gather and learn from, the less that you are going to get frustrated when changes happen in Windows 10. Especially with a huge change when Redstone 2 comes out next year.

    And you were given a simple answer, you pin or unpin any icon you want to the taskbar, if you want to repin an icon in the future just go to your start menu, browse to the icon and choose Pin to Takbar, same as always.

    Yes of course you would unpin it if you don`t use it, but you never delete an icon.
