    Windows 10 Mail location


    Greetings folks,

    Does anyone know the location of the folder where emails are stored if you use the Microsoft Windows 10 Mail App or are they not stored locally on the PC anymore?

    Someone said they were in the microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps/localstate folder but they aren't so I'm guessing that may be a Windows 8 Mail answer and things have changed since Windows 10. I've also searched for .eml files and cannot find any.

    Any help appreciated.

    :)

    Would like to open "Windows 10 Mail" with the "Mail" key on my multimedia keyboard.

    Hmmmm... if I am using "Windows 10 Mail", it would follow that I am using Windows 10, right?

    The latest drivers for my keyboard are already installed. However, when pressing the "Mail" key on the keyboard, it can't find "Windows Live Mail" (now uninstalled). All I need to know is where the executable "Windows 10 Mail" file is located on my hard
    drive, so I can reassign the "Mail" key to run it instead.

    I have looked, but they appear to be missing at the two most logical locations:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Mail

    C:\Program Files\Windows Mail

    The only other location I could suspect is:

    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

    Unfortunately, Windows 10 won't give me permission to open that directory, even though I am 'god' on this computer.

    So far, this is what I found out. I cannot say it is the correct path. Hopefully, someone who knows this topic will come along.

    Here is the path I am aware of..............
    C:\Users\Mohit\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\F iles\601

    Open 601 and you should see .dat files.
    Trouble is...... I don't know how to open .dat files. So I don't know it they contain what we are looking for.
