You could try adding it in the calendar app or messages app as they are all linked together
Hi , As you suggested I tried the following ways,
1. Tried to add my GMAIL Account from Calendar app, But can't see any option there. 2. In Mail App I can't find option to add the account.
3. In Messaging and people app, If I click on the 'Connected to' link it showing a bar on right hand side and immediately hiding it.
I have re-installed the app, but still the same issues.
Is there any other way to do so..

I found the option. When in the app you move the mouse to the bottom right corner of the screen then move it up and click on settings, then accounts and finally click add an account

Hi pancool, Hope you doing fine. I have tried this way too, but when I click the "accounts" option I am getting one side panel which has "Add Account" option, but that side menu appeared and hidden immediately. I can't make any selection on that.

hello arunpandiyanm,

did you ever get response(s) to your issue about the side menu that closes immediately?

Hi @ramponin Yes, I had many that you can see them on this thread , but none of them has worked for me. I made my mind, I cant sync GMAIL Account, After all I moved back to Win7 ..... But I 'd Like the Win8.
