Set up Gmail in the Windows 10 mail application.

  • To open the Mail application, simply click Start and type Mail. The main result should be Mail: a trusted application from the Microsoft Store.
  • The main application is divided into three sections: on the left is the sidebar where you will see your list of email accounts and folders, in the center, is where a short description of all the emails in that folder will be displayed and the right panel the individual email is complete.
  • Click Accounts in the left sidebar, then click Add Account in the right pane that appears.
  • You can add an Outlook.com account, an Exchange account, a Yahoo email, and iCloud email, or any other POP or IMAP-enabled email account. In our case, we will select Google. Go ahead and enter your Google credentials and click Allow to allow Windows to access emails, calendars, and contacts.
  • If all went well, you should receive a success message indicating that the account has been added to Windows.
  • All emails from Gmail’s inbox should now appear within the Mail application. You will notice that, by default, the mail application only shows you the Inbox folder and you’re done.
  • What if you have a lot of Gmail & tim mail tags? Well, go ahead, click on the More link and it will load the rest of your Gmail tags, which are basically folders in the Mail application.
