  1. Change mail app archive location


    I've searched until my fingers are raw... *Sick In the Windows 10 mail app, I want to change the location where the
    "Archive" button sends the mail to. Currently the default location is the "All Mail" folder, I'd like to change that. Can anyone tell me how to go about that? As I remember, there was no setup for that when I was putting my mail accounts in the system. Thanks for any/all help.

    :)

    Locate archived mail in Windows 10 Mail

    When you use 'NEW Mail" in Windows 10 Mail one of the listings that appears at the top of the page is the word "Archive".

    How do you locate a file that is put in "Archive"?

    Change mail app archive location

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Change mail app archive location :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
