The ‘My People’ feature in Windows 10 lets you pin your closest contacts to your taskbar, thereby making it easier and quicker to email, chat with (text and video), or send files or media to them. Here’s how to set it up:

– Click the People icon / button in the Taskbar’s notification area (bottom right).

– Connect the communication apps it works with (Skype and Mail). If you’ve signed into your email accounts in the Mail and Skype apps they’ll already be connected.

– If you’re using your regular PC, you’ll see your top five contacts suggested. On a new PC, you can just choose the ‘Find and Pin’ contacts option at the bottom of the People bar. Tap this to show all the contacts in your address book, and pin three contacts as circular icons to your taskbar (more can be the ‘My People’ bar itself). You can also combine the different email and Skype accounts for a single contact here.

– You can now access your key people from the ‘My People’ pins, and even see any emojis sent to you via Skype.
