    Win10 Mail program - how to have unread emails highlighted?


    I'm trying to work out how to make unread emails more obvious in "Windows 10 Mail". Currently they show up in blue:

    Is there a way to make them more obvious? I can see it getting quite confusing as I get a LOT of emails every day. Ideally, I would like a different background colour on the unread emails. Is this possible?

    If the colour change is not sufficient the next best approach is to select only the unread emails by using the dropdown selector at the top of the Inbox. By default it is set to show all - you can change this to show unread or flagged.

    Mmm yeah I saw that, but it doesn't seem very intuitive :/ It seems like the app is still quite lacking (no HTML signatures for example). Maybe I will just have to keep to my GMail tabs open in Chrome (all 4 of them, which slows down the browser quite a bit)

    Thanks anyway :)
