How To Change Mail App’s Color & Theme

The Mail app is one of the more frequently used Windows 10 apps. To make it a nicer environment to work in, change Mail app color and theme according to your taste.

Windows 8 saw the birth of the Mail app which brought users closer to their inbox and emails in a very smart manner. It was very well received as now there was no need to open Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and re-login to your email account every time because of its ability to automatically retrieve your emails via syncing.

Windows 10 came with a much improved version of it with a somewhat similar UI, which allows quick shuffling between your emails and calendar. It did encounter the 0x80073 error in its initial days but fortunately its been smooth sailing since then. One of it its newer features is Mail authoring which I use a lot myself. Some bug fixes and improved performance were other notable traits associated with the new Mail app.

Technicalities aside, today we’re focusing more on its beauty. Beauty is a term synonymous with all Windows apps as is signified by the wonderful interface of the Mail app.
