The latest Windows 10 build brings a bevy of new features and improvements, as Microsoft is preparing for the release of the Creators Update OS. Build 15002 marks the beginning of a wave of changes, and this trend will likely continue until April, when the Redmond giant is expected to release the Creators Update.

One of the recent changes involves the Windows 10 Mail app. Email is a fast and reliable communication tool, allowing you to stay connected with your friends and colleague.

Microsoft knows that Windows 10 users need to launch their email app very quickly so as to access the information they need as soon as possible.

For this reason, the Windows 10 Mail app is now pinned to your Taskbar by default. However, if you have another email tool already pinned to your Taskbar, the Mail app won’t get pinned.

Windows 10 Mail app is pinned to Taskbar by default

You may see the Mail app pinned to your Taskbar after updating to Build 15014. The Mail app is now pinned by default to the Taskbar starting with the Windows 10 Creators Update. If you unpin the Mail app after this change, it will not return. ADDED: If you have Outlook 2016 (or previous Outlook releases), Yahoo! Mail, or TouchMail pinned to your taskbar – the Mail app won’t get pinned.

For many users, pinning Windows 10 Mail to Taskbar can prove to be quite a challenge. There are many users who have experienced various issues when trying to pin Windows 10 Mail to Taskbar: the icon wouldn’t pin, there was no “Pin to taskbar” option, Pin to Taskbar was greyed out and more.

If you’re not a principled old-school mail user, you can always try another solution. We suggest you to check our list of mail clients and apps who can easily replace your Windows Mail app experience with another one.

Thanks to the latest Windows 10 build, you can now strike this task off your list.
