Windows 10 Mail and Calendar app

Microsoft is currently rolling out a new update for its Windows 10 Mail and Calendar app. The latest update comes with the most awaited Microsoft To-Do integration to the Mail and Calendar app. The latest update advances the Mail and Calendar version to 16005.11001.20041.0.

A dedicated To-Do button has been added to the hamburger menu which lets users easily use the To Do application from within the Mail app. Users will now be able to easily launch the To Do shortcut to make a note of something important which comes up in the Mail or Calendar apps.

Microsoft apart from adding a shortcut to the To-Do app has also made some improvements to the dark theme in the message list. The dark mode has now been slightly tweaked and now comes with a grey tone which has been added along with the black accent.

The Mail and Calendar apps have recently received many new features in previous updates with the company adding Fluent Design elements to the application earlier.

The previous update for the Mail and Calendar app introduced the option to customize the digital signature in the email. The updated brought a new pop up box that allowed users to change their signature. The users have also been provided with the option to customize the digital signature by using different text fonts.

Microsoft is also testing a new toggle for Windows 10 Mail app that would appear in the header and it will allow users to easily switch between dark and white mode. The toggle would appear like a sun icon when the dark mode is enabled and as the moon when the white mode is enabled.
