Windows 10 is a major change in the world of Operating Systems and it has been in the news for a while. It’s elegant GUI and performance has been a major reason for its popularity among the computer users all over the world.

A number of users have reported an error 0x800754e while trying to setup their account on Mail and Calendar apps. It also states, “Something went wrong, we’re sorry but we weren’t able to do that”. Windows Store had a lot of bugs and it also lacked features in Windows 8 but Microsoft took a step ahead and enhanced its user experience to an extent. Windows 10 has a number of built-in apps that are pretty useful in certain ways. The Mail and Calendar apps are one of them that are used a lot by the Windows 10 users. Unfortunately, these two apps are more controversial when talking about accessibility. Both of these apps have a lot of bugs and these cannot be used at certain occasions. So, I will be mentioning some fixes for this problem in Windows 10.
