    How Do You Create and Rename Email Folders in the Windows 10 Mail App


    How do you create and rename folders in the Windows 10 Mail App?

    With the Windows 8 Mail App, it was just a case of right-clicking, but the Windows 10 Mail App, right-clicking just shows 'Remove From Favourites' and 'Pin To Start'. There's no context menu for 'Create Folder' or 'Rename Folder'.

    Hello Arc,

    There not a way to do so from within the Windows 10 Mail app. Only to add or remove them.

    Mail app Favorites - Add or Remove Folders in Windows 10

    However, if you go to outlook.com online and create a new folder there, it will be available to add in the Mail app afterwards.

    How odd, I really thought I was going mad when I couldn't find a way to do it, as I was sure there must be a way. I wonder if they've just overlooked it?

    No, not overlooked. It's a completely new app, and it's not fully mature yet. New versions will come out periodically (it was the same way when Windows 8 was first released. The mail app was even worse)

    Not mature, I think it's barely conceived. Seriously, I'm dumbfounded, I've just tried to empty the deleted items folder (which doesn't have a right-click option to do so either) and also found CTRL + A to 'Select All' doesn't even work...

    Then to top it off, as Windows 8 got everyone in the habit of dragging to close the Mail app, I've just dragged the stupid thing behind my auto hide taskbar.
