Users can also make their own Swipe Gestures to carry out operations like moving, deleting, or marking mails.

Microsoft said in a blog post: "Mail leverages the familiar and rich capability of Word to that allows you to easily insert tables, add pictures and use bullets and color to your text. Both the new Mail and Calendar apps support Office 365, Exchange,, Gmail, IMAP, POP and other popular accounts."

The build 10061 of Windows 10 brings visual improvements to the start menu, taskbar, and action center.
