    Windows 10 Mail app - don't show account name on left


    Hello, I'm setting up a new W10 laptop for my mum.

    In the standard Mail app I've linked her IMAP account successfully.

    The name of the account (with unread messages count) shows on the left pane, above the list of folders.

    Is it possible to hide the account name from the left pane? She only has one account and keeps clicking the account name instead of the inbox.

    Thanks!

    Not quite sure of your question, as clicking on the Account on the Left Panel gives you the Inbox on the Central Pane.
    Clicking on an Email in the Central Pane gives the Email on the right.

    You can change to a 2 Pane View by clicking on the 3 Bars Top left. Which I think is what is required.

    Thank you @Helmut I just wanted there to be no confusion between the 2 ways to get to the inboxes. Using the 3 bars isn't quite what I want as I want the folder list to still show.

    You can used the 3 bars to hide the accounts and then click on the square icon and it will open the folders.
