One great feature of Windows Mail in Windows 8 and Windows RT is the ability pin individual inboxes and folders to the Start Screen. This can be useful when you want to which e-mail accounts have received mail or how much mail you have in particular Exchange folders to warrant checking it.
For instance, during work hours week I might not be worried so much about social media notifications while work e-mail would get higher priority. Alternatively, if I get e-mail from family then I should probably check it out. Having this extra information available can be quite useful.
So how do you do it?
- Open Windows Mail,
- Click on an inbox of folder you want to pin to the Start Screen,
- Right click or swipe up from the bottom of screen,
- Select Pin to Start.
Give it a shot and see how it works for you.
