I accidentally removed the default emails+accounts pin from the main Windows Screen ( has an envelope as an icon) . Now how do I pin it back to the main Windows screen? The option to pin it is not available. I also do not want to do a hard reset of the phone.
When adding an account, you gave the account a name.
Go to the application list (Windows key, then swipe to the right). On the application list, look for the account name. Long tap the account name and then tap "pin to start".
Note: if you don't remember the name given to your account, go to Settings then "emails+accounts" then click on "Microsoft account" and the first field states the account name.
