    How to find email application at second user


    Once I created a new user for my wife, I can't see where to access the email application on her user.
    I just see the email tile at my user. How to enable email application to her user?
    Thanks in advance,
    Carlos

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, Carlos.

    When on Start Screen type Mail. Mail should appear in the results. Right click and choose Pin to start.

    In the event you're not using Windows Mail but some other one like Thunderbird, adding to Hippsie's info, when on the start screen, there's a small down arrow on the bottom left of your screen. Click on that and you'll get a (most likely) confusing screen with about a gazillion items on it. The first part of the screen shows an alphabetical list of installed apps/programs. If you don't find what you're looking for there, go to the second part (pretty easy to see where it starts) and begin looking. As a f'r instance, I have Microsoft Office and Word Perfect Office installed. All of my Microsoft Office apps are under M, while Word Perfect Office apps are under W.

    You'll be able to find pretty much all of your missing apps/programs in this window, unless you've installed something as "for this user only" which I think will make it unavailable for your new user. Since I'm the only user on this system, I generally install "for everyone" because I'm pretty much "everyone".

    Say that you install a CAD program and your wife will never even look at it . . . you install it for yourself only; thus, you don't clutter up (ha!) her user account. Vice Versa, if she uses a program you're not interested in, she can install it from her account and say for herself only.

    Hope this little "booklet" helps.

    Thank you all, but none of the solutions worked for me.
    I really can't see the email application when logged on my wife account.
    When using my user all you said works perfectly.
    Any new idea to solve this issue?
    Thank you again!

    It's odd that these weren't added when creating an account. Open the Store > Type "mail" > "Mail, Calendar, and People" should appear > choose that and install.

    How did you find it, Fuinhas? Curiosity killed the ferret, and . . .

    The answer may help someone else in the future, and if you found it in a way different than we've pointed out, we should know so we can point others in the right direction. Yeh, it'll happen again to someone.

    Very good, Mr. "Ferret". Now I will put Hippsie's instructions in my troubleshooting manual. Thank you.
