You don't. The 'Hub' contains all of your accounts. If you want to go to a specific one, simply click the icon in the lower left corner and then chose the 'inbox' that you want to work in. Clicking the blue bar at the top allows you to drill down into the folders contained within that inbox.

Re: Z10 Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts

Thanks, but it not what I ask. How can I display an envelope icon on my home screen with other applications ?

Sorry, you cannot do that.

 

Well, you can IF you want to use the browser connection to your email account, you can save a browser link to your homescreen.

 

But this is not a "Tips and Tricks", this thread is for users to post Tips and Tricks, not ask questions. I'll ask a moderator to move your question to it's own thread.

Re: Email envelope on home screen?


Tip: You can add a shortcut (saved bookmark to home screen) for m.gmail.com for your Gmail account. You can also do the same for Outlook.com, etc. I just use the Hub myself for emailing and prefer to have quick access to all my email accounts through the native BlackBerry Hub.

Re: Email envelope on home screen?

I'd love to be able to know how to do this as well.

 

Yes - there is going to the HUB, but being able to visual able to see which email accounts have new email and simply click in to them would be better as not all email accounts are displayed in the HUB (at least not on mine and the way I set them up).

 

Older BBs had this from home screen, would be cool if BB10 had this as well.

Re: Email envelope on home screen?

OS10.2 will return an email icon. Until then if you setup your Hub to display all your email accounts, they will be visible. Good luck.

Re: Email envelope on home screen?

From what I can see, it is only one icon... which basically opens the Hub. It might be what you want, but it might also be improved before full release.
