How to Add or Remove Folders from Favorites in Windows 10 Mail app


The Mail and Calendar apps included with Windows 10 help you stay up to date on your email, manage your schedule and stay in touch with people you care about the most. Designed for both work and home, these apps help you communicate quickly and focus on what’s important across all your accounts. Supports Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo! and other popular accounts.
An added account in Mail has folders such as the Inbox, Drafts, Junk, Sent (Sent Items), and Trash (Deleted Items) for your email messages. You can add or remove folders from Favorites under the account name to what you like.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove folders from Favorites for each account in your Mail app in Windows 10.

To create a new folder, you would need to sign in online to your email account (ex: Outlook), then create a new inbox folder there. Afterwards, it will sync with the Mail app.
