    need to remove Outlook mail icon/setting from system settings as default mail app


    By mistake Outlook was set as default mail app. How do I remove it? This is the location in settings. it was originally not there.Before this happened and I would copy a link and my chrome/ aol would open. I do not use outlook other than to write in this forum.Can someone please tell me how to remove it. Clickiing on it does nothing. I'm getting the feeling Windows will not allow its removal.Everything worked as I needed before this happened. I only use the web-based version of outlook mail. I have never set up the Windows 360 which opens and would need to be set up.Thanks.

    :)

    Cannot open mail app settings


    OK, my next suggestion was going to be uninstalling Mail and Calendar and reinstalling from the Windows Store. You can have a go at this by following these steps.

    1. Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell.
    2. Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    3. Enter the below command to remove the Mail and calendar app.

    get-appxpackage *microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps* | remove-appxpackage

    After performing the above steps, install the Mail and calendar app from the Windows Store.

    Hope this helps, you will, of course, have to add you accounts back again.

    need to remove Outlook mail icon/setting from system settings as default mail app

    Set Mail app to show mail subject on top instead of sender

    In the Mail app's list view, I would like to view the mail's subject on top for each item. The default is showing the senders of the mail conversation on top, then the subject with smaller font, then the content brief.

    In the Outlook app, I used to be able to set this order. Is it somehow possible for Mail?

    I looked in all the options of the app and the help it linked to. Also googled some, but not exactly sure what I'm supposed to search for to reduce irrelevant results.
