Send Button is Missing in Thunderbird

Dear Computer Lady,

When I want to send an email in Mozilla Thunderbird, I can’t send it because the, “Send” button has disappeared.

Can you help me get it back?

Thank you, Velma

Dear Velma,

It sounds like the composition toolbar has been turned off. Here is how to turn it back on.

1. Open a new email messages using the, “Write” button.

2. If the menu bar across the top of your new email is visible, click on “View”.

If it is not visible, tap the, “Alt” button on your keyboard to display the menu, then click on, “View”.

3. In the “View” menu, hover your mouse pointer over, “Toolbars”.

4. In the, “Toolbars” menu, click on, “Composition Toolbar” to turn it on.

You should now have a composition toolbar with the, “Send” button at the top of your email message.
