Windows 10 Live Mail Tiles are not "LIVE"

HP 15 Red Flyer Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi!  In Windows 10....the live tile on my Start Up looks like this (and it does not change) :



 I have to open the Mail app and read the e-mail. The live tile does not show anything though.  Is the live tile supposed to show something or not?  

 

I have tried everything I know how to try and researched the internet as always.....

 

Should know better and just ask the Geek Squad from the very beginning....save myself a lot of time and angst :)

There is not much to the "Live Tile", although when switched to "Live", the tile should at least give you a number in the lower right corner to indicate the number of "new" emails in the Inbox.

 

Windows key >

Right-Click Mail Tile > Resize > select size Wide or Large 

Next:

Right-Click on Mail Tile > More > Switch "Live" tile to "ON"

You are welcome.

 

The last little icon in the post editor is the Spell checker -- it is not great but it does catch the more obvious words.

 

Happy Computing!

Most of us were, at one time, able to spell at least a modicum number of words used in daily conversation.  A bit of study improved the ratio -- and helped make us smarter.  Smiling.

 

Today, not-so-much.  We are slaved to word-correct and spell-check applications.

 

Personally, I'm old and becoming brain-lazy.   I take advantage of the boost provided by any means necessary:  word-correct, spell-check, the occasional use of a thesaurus, words and phrases from my youth...
