Windows 10 Tip: Stay in touch with My People

Did you know with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you can talk and share faster with the people you talk to the most?

Quick access to your top people

Now you can pin the people you communicate with most to the taskbar for convenient, one-click access through apps like Mail and Skype. Tap on your pinned contact to send an email or chat using Skype without having to open the apps.

People-first sharing

Sharing is as easy as dragging a file directly onto the pinned contacts in your taskbar. Or share directly via the ‘Share’ picker by choosing from the recommended list of your top people.

See emoji from pinned contacts

Emoji from your pinned contacts can appear and animate right from the taskbar – an extra level of emotional connection and expression between you and the key people in your life.
