As mentioned by Josh Jacobson, Director of Product Management, Yahoo,”there are three new ways to check to see if you have new messages. On the lock screen, a count of new messages will appear so you can see if you need to even sign in to your computer. In the Start Menu, a Live Tile is available that shows you snippets of the latest new email (Just “pin” the Yahoo Mail app to the Start Menu to enable the Live Tile). And as you use your computer throughout the day, desktop notifications will appear to alert you of any new messages. All of these can be controlled in the Windows Settings”.
Of course, being a Windows app, it’s now super easy to also access your Yahoo Mail from the taskbar or via the popular “alt-tab” shortcut. And you always have the option to set Yahoo Mail as your default app for sending new mails any time you click an email address from the web or other apps. All of these features are available for any Windows 10 tablet desktop computer, including the Microsoft Surface, adds Josh Jacobson.
