What does sync mean in Windows 10?

Syncing (syncing) is a way to keep settings and data the same across multiple devices; Here’s what Microsoft has to say about it: When sync is triggered, Windows keeps track of the settings you care about and configures them for you across all your Windows 10 devices.

I have configured my email on windows 10 and I access it from the action center. This is the place where I get new notifications for my email.

The first thing you need to do is go to settings from the start menu, then accounts, scroll down and you will see a link there – Add an account, I have already added my outlook and my Gmail account, if I need to add my third account I can do it, let’s say it is yahoo, just add a user name and password and sign in rest is self-explanatory.

Once the email is configured you may want to do sync settings for that tap on the mail client manage, change mailbox sync settings, make changes here – download new content as it arrives or every 15 minutes, 30 minutes basis your need. You may also want to make changes in the download email from the last 3 days, any time, email sync is on, done, and save it.

As a new email arrives, the action center icon turns white, as of now there is no new email, just tap on it and you can check your mails here. There are multiple ways to access mails, the method that I use is – I click on the start menu and then tap on this mail. You may also access mail by typing mail in the search box or by going into all apps, click on any digit, and then M, and here is the mail app. It is already open. I can switch between two mailboxes with a single tap, here I am on Gmail and then I can easily switch over to outlook, compose an email from outlook or Gmail easily. You may want to check your settings on notifications for that click on this gear icon, notifications and ensure that this is enabled – show notifications in the action center. Once this is done new email notifications will start appearing here.

When you configure your email client on this device, it will ask you to verify your email id on the device for which – go to settings, account. Under your email and accounts, you will see sync here which will say verify this email on this device, I have already done that. Now I will need to provide the access of email to this app, for which go back to settings, then privacy, email from the left-hand side navigation, ensure that this is enabled, mail and calendar. If you don’t get new email notifications on the action center, go back to the settings window, system, notification, and actions from the left-hand side scroll down and ensure that this is enabled mail.

I have already done that. Once all these settings are done, you will start receiving all new notifications of your email here for the mailboxes that you have configured. For some reason, if you wish to delete the mailbox configuration, I will show you how to do that? Settings, back to accounts, under your emails and accounts, scroll down, tap on the mailbox that you want to delete, I am first doing it for Gmail, manage, simply click on remove this account from this device and it will be removed. This method of deleting accounts works for all email clients but for Microsoft.

To delete a Microsoft or Outlook account, you will need to scroll up and then sign in with a local account instead. Enter your current password here, next – set a password for the local account and tap on next and it will be done. Well, that was about configuring an email client on windows 10.
