Windows 10: How the heck does the Mail program work?

    How the heck does the Mail program work?

    So I opened up the mail program and added a new account to my gmail account.

    Now I open up the Mail program and it still shows me the "add account" option but not how to actually see my mail. Thinking that it didn't "take" when I added my gmail account I tried to add the account again and it just tells me that the account already exists.

    So how do I use it as a proper email reader as it only shows me the following image even though I've added my google / gmail account:

    Hi ... I also had that problem . I'm not sure what I did but now my works . Try doing a restart and afterwards if you see your email address listed in the add section just click the ready option and see if that does it
