What I want to know is how do I get the Menu to show?? File, Edit, etc

Thanks for any help

Or..

Just click on your name and select "Show the menu bar" and it should stick there

I tried pressing the Alt key at various places and nothing ever came up about menu. Is there any particular place the cursor should be when I press "Alt" key??

I don't see it either cause you modified the name area on the pic like I did on mine.

Anyway, beside your name you'll see a little arrow pointing downwards, click on that and select Show the menu bar.

no need for the red bold letters, i am not blind ARE YOU?
You press the ALT key when Windows Live Messanger is the focus window. Focus windows means it's basically the active window. If the advice from both people above me did not work uninstall restart and reinstall.
