Windows Phone 7 Tip: Rename Email Accounts

Advertisement

In Windows Phone 7, you can’t really adjust how Live Tiles appear on your screen. What you see is what you get. But that’s not entirely true for email accounts. You can actually rename any of your email accounts, thus affecting the corresponding Live Tile label, to add some pizazz to your Start screen. To do that, go to Settings, Email and Accounts, tap on a desire account, then change the Account Name. No more default “Outlook” tile!
