How Can I Get Outlook On My PC?

Just noticed that my computer doesn’t have Outlook email program installed. I have it on my smartphone, but would like to add it to my computer for work. How do I go about installing it?

Bob, I’ve noticed that you have a Gmail address, so I’m wondering if you really mean Outlook is installed on your phone or if you’re talking about an e-mail client.  The only Outlook available for phones right now is the app for viewing your messages from your account. (although you could have other e-mail accounts forwarded to that account.) 

The icon for would look like this on an Android Phone:


The icon for the e-mail client would look like this:


If you want to access from your PC, you can just open a browser and go to


I suspect you are talking about an e-mail client on your phone that will download copies of your messages from any accounts you enter in to it.

 If you want the full version of Outlook on your PC, you’ll have to pay for it as either part of an Office 365 subscription or around $100 to download the program for your PC. There are free alternatives for your computer.

If you are using Windows 8 or 8.1 – you already have an e-mail client in the form of your Mail app.  Click here to learn how to set up you mail in that program.


If you are using Windows 7, you may already have Live Mail installed on your computer.  Click the Start Menu and search Windows Live Mail and click the result.


If it isn’t already installed on your computer, click here to learn how to download it for free and set it up.

 Hope this helps.

    Just recently started reading your article on how to download and set up Live Mail on a Windows 7 pc. I clicked on “read more” to finish reading only to find “Error 404″ and the pyrochimp set fire to the page. How can I find the rest of that article?
