Windows 7: Windows Live Mail Questions: Deselect and email links

Windows Live Mail Questions: Deselect and email links

Question 1: I am using Ctrl-A in Windows Live Mail to select groups of mail that I need to delete but I can't find a way to deselect an email in the group. Since holding down Ctrl and clicking doesn't work anymore the way it did in XP has anyone found a workaround or a solution to this?

Question 2: Within emails I have a problem clicking on any link that is supposed to open to an email, the links to web pages work fine. I have already gone to the applications tab in options and tried selecting every mail option available and none of them work. Has anyone found a workaround or a solution to this?

Thanks for all assistance!

Hi BKMalik, welcome to Seven Forums.

Answer 1, just hold CTRL and select the ones you want to delete one by one.
Answer 2, ensure WLM is set as Default.

Already tried that, doesn't work unless you are ctrl-clicking each email individually, won't work with ctrl-A.

Answer 2, ensure WLM is set as Default.

Solved, thanks.

For me in Win 7 32 Bit with WLM 2012:
  • Ctrl-A selects ALL emails.
  • Holding Ctrl and left mouse clicking an email message de-selects it from the list.
  • I can left click more than one message to "de-select" multiple messages from the list

This does not work for me. I can select but ctrl left-click will not deselect (Win 7 64bit, Windows Live Mail).

Do you think I should install WLM 2012? Can it be installed over 2011?

Ok, interesting...

I use Outlook, and i don't have much experience with WLM.
I'm just starting to use WLM now for learning and testing...

For me WLM works the way i believe it should, just like other Windows programs.
I think you have some type of issue that needs a repair/fix...

I would start with a System File Check
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I think i read there is a repair option for WLM, but i can't be sure at the moment...
Maybe someone knows for sure, or I'll see what i can find.

I think 2012 can be installed over 2011.
I'm not sure if that would fix your issue.

I always create a SYSTEM BACKUP IMAGE before making changes I'm not sure of.


I also know i can restore an image, because i have tested backup and restore.

WLM 2012 will install easily without having to uninstall 2011 first and all your settings and messages will not get lost. Download Windows Live Mail 2012 (16.4.3503) - FileHippo.com

Do you think that it will fix the problem? Are there any more bugs in 2012 that I may be letting myself in for?
