Hi Daniel,

 

Thank you for choosing Windows 8 and welcome to Microsoft Community Forums.

 

I see that the Mail App has disappeared from the Start Screen.

 

I understand this issue and will help to guide you in the right direction to resolve it.

 

However, we need more information on this issue. Please answer the following question.

 

1.          Did you make any changes to the computer prior to this issue?

2.          Are you able to see People, Messaging and Calendar apps on the Start Screen?

 

 

Here’s what you can try:

 

If the People, Messaging and Calendar apps aren’t showing on the Start Screen, then proceed directly to Method 2:

 

Method 1: Check if the Mail app is un-pinned from the Start Screen.

 

Follow these steps to pin the Mail App back to the Start Screen.

 

a.          Open the Start Screen and right-click on empty space.

b.          Click on All Apps at the bottom right of the screen.

c.           Check for Mail App and, if present, right-click on it.

d.          Select Pin-to-Start.

 

This will add the Mail App to the Start Screen.

 

Method 2: If the Mail app isn’t present in the All Apps window, just download it from Windows Store, free-of-cost.

 

Follow these steps to do so:

 

a.     Open Windows Store in the Start Screen.

b.     Press Windows key + C to open the Charms Bar.

c.      Select Search and type Mail App.

d.     Click on the option with the Windows Logo on it.

e.     After it opens, click on Install.

 

This will install Mail App in the Start Screen.

 

I would suggest you to scan your computer with Microsoft Safety Scanner, which would help to get rid of viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

 

The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free-to-download security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after being downloaded. To rerun a scan with the latest anti-malware definitions, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

 

Important: While scanning the hard drive if any bad sectors are found, the scanner tries to repair that sector, any data available on that might be lost.

 

Please let us know the results.

 

If you have any further questions about Windows, write to us, anytime.

Hi

 

Yeah the Mail People and Messanger is also missing

 

I was prompted to install udpates for some apps and I select Mail, People and Messanger

 

But the update did not install, error code and said try again

 

I went back to the Windows Store to download, but it tells me I already own the app

 

Can I override this setting
