Windows 10 users have a small treat in store for them, as Microsoft has rolled out a rather important feature for its Mail app.
The application now has a Dark Theme, which looks much cooler than the regular one.
Yes, it is the same dark theme which is available in Microsoft Edge, and several other apps in the operating system. This isn’t exactly surprising though. Microsoft always tests new features of its apps, in the Preview Builds of Windows 10, before it rolls it out to the general public. And it did the same, for the Dark Theme as well. A few weeks ago, the Redmond company rolled out a new update for the Mail and Calendar app, which added the [...]
If you read my write up last week, you may be aware that Windows 10’s Mail app added the option to disable Conversation View for all emails.
But there was a slight catch in that the feature was only available for the members of the Windows Insider Program.
This is due to the fact, that the Preview Builds of the operating system, have preview builds of the apps too.

Annoying isn’t it? Okay before we get deeper into the subject, [...]
It’s a strange thing, but I just keep running in to one broken feature or another in Windows 10.
This time, my headache was the Mail for Windows 10 app.
Yes, it is the same Mail and Calendar app which you can find on the Windows Store. Up until a few days ago, I had absolutely no issues with the Mail app. Frankly, I don’t use it often, and just use it as a “newsletter” mailbox, to collect emails about deals from various online retailers (digital and physical products).
