Missing Tools Menu in Live Mail

Dear Computer Lady,

I enjoy the computer lady very much. Please answer this one question.

I have windows 7 and using windows live mail.

My question: I can’t find the word “tools” in my menu bar in windows live mail.

Can you help me please? Thank You, Bob


Dear Bob,

Accessing the tools menu in Windows Live Mail is a little tricky because there is no more “Tools” in the menu bar.

This is the tab to access the Windows Live Mail Options

Instead, you need to click on the tab to the left of the “Home” tab, then hover your mouse over, “Options” in the sub-menu.

Most of the items that used to be under “Tools” can be found by clicking on “Mail” under the “Options” menu.

    I use Windows Live Mail with IE 7 and TOOLS is listed.

    When I tried to IE 9 several items were missing and I didn’t like the program itself so I reverted back to IE 8
    Hope this helps.
