    How to remove W10 Mail Program


    Hi

    I need to remove the Mail program that came with W10 from my PC,
    or at least disable it.

    How do I do that?

    Thanks

    You can uninstall it - See the Tutorial section, search for uninstall, and keep hitting F3 until you find the tutorial about uninstalling apps. Or you could do a general internet search
    'How do you uninstall Mail "windows 10" '

    Note- you will also uninstall the Calendar.

    Question is, why bother? Repair actions on Windows reinstate the default apps, as does each build upgrade.

    I've never used it- it's never bothered me. I use Thunderbird.

    If your problem is about switching default email clients, and your choice isn't retained, that's another matter.

    Not any more. The CU upgrade doesn't put back apps you have uninstalled. It just gives you new apps you don't want instead

    To remove the mail app you have to remove Calandar as well as they are packaged together under a product called WindowsCommunicationApps.

    To remove them you can use CCleaner or this tutorial Uninstall Apps in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Apps Features Tutorials
