    Lost my Mail Tile


    Looks like I have found another forum to read while at work



    I have set things up and added a hotmail account and things worked fine even though the hotmail screen seemed to lack in inforamtion as in win 7

    So tried to connect to Outlook .com with no success (my lack of ability) maybe now I have lost the mail tile somehow and cannot find a way to restore it

    When I restore it can someone help me to use outlook.com with the tiles ...............................Please


    Not sure about win 8 at the mo

    Go into the Store App, then charms and search Mail,, you will see under Recommended "Mail, Calendar, People.... that is the app
    click it and install

    Windows Store - Search for Apps


    If that doesn't work and you have Calendar or People App Tile, Right click one of those uninstall it and then try installing fromt he store again

    Had to take that with my Windows Phone.
    But that is where it is at. It should show there wether the app is installed or not
    If it doesn't,, there are other issues.
