    Gmail Tile Icon on Taskbar?


    If I can avoid it I would prefer to not use Windows 10 built in Mail app. What I want to do is have direct access to my Gmail account via the taskbar and/or a tile. Is this possible?

    I would suggest using Windows Mail as it is far more secure than other 3rd party apps.
    Simply sync your Gmail account within Windows Mail, create a shortcut for Windows Mail, assign it a 'Gmail' icon if you wish, put the shortcut in a folder in Documents, create a Quick Launch Toolbar of that folder.
    Instant access to your Gmail account.

    Or just use Chromes web based service for checking your emails. Then all you would have to do is add your other email accounts. Then get the chrome extension that shows your emails in the browser or move it to your taskbar.
