(Windows 8 Mail App) Gmail fails to show star option to move email to Starred Folder

Why can I not star a mail item to move it to the star (important) folder or unstar it to remove it from same?
Hello KiwiSRE,

You can not change the Starred functionality of your gmail account in the Mail app on Windows 8. Any of the starred options  would need to be done on your Gmail account itself. Windows 8 mail allows you to see all of your email accounts in one place. But it doesn't have the functionality of the gmail account options. It has the Starred folder and the email that is starred does show up in the Starred folder. But you can only make changes to the Starred email within gmail itself. Once you sync after making a change in gmail, it does show up in Windows 8 mail.

Hope this helps to answer your question.
