Windows 7: Moving the "From" box to the left of the screen in Windows Live Mail

Moving the "From" box to the left of the screen in Windows Live Mail

When creating a new message how do I move the "From" box to the left of the screen so that it lies directly below the "To" box (as used to be the case with Outlook Express)? At the moment the "From" box is located at the far right of the screen. As I have a 16x9 screen and a number of email addresses it is far too easy to press the Send button before realising that I have the wrong address in the "From" box. Yes, I know that I should be prefect and carefully check first, but it is simply too easy to make a mistake. There must be some way of moving the "From" box back to a more sensible position.

i don't think you can, unless you're into hacking program files.

i'm afraid you'll just have to get used to it.

i really don't like where the paste button is, i keep on 'thinking' it's send.

being philosophical, things change and we ought to change along with them to some extent, i suppose.
