    Mail app not working after update

    When I first installed Win 8 the mail app worked I then did some updates this morning and it is not working at all..all I get is a blank screen and the only way out is to go to the left hand side of screen and go back to the previous screen.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi SciFiKriss, welcome to the forums, try uninstalling updates one by one starting from the latest, you could eliminate the one causing problem.

    Ok I have just checked where you would normally go for updates...through the control panel and the apps updates are not there where are they stored?

    Are you asking about Apps updates, they are suggested Apps for you to try, if you have updated any of them you can uninstall them if you don't need them.

    EDIT: I couldn't find the "Installed Updates" for Apps, what I have done is going to Apps and uninstalled them and reinstalled.
