Windows 7: How to disable Skydrive and photo album in WLM 2011

28 Jan 2016   #51

Windows 7 64 Bit

If it's still there, WLM 2009 is at I hope you can find it. You cannot install WLM2009 over WLM2012. Do a search on Google to find the answer on how to clean-up WLM 2012.

Good luck! I use WLM2009 and it works on W8.1 and W10. Though I like W7 best. I use just the email client and it works great.

Because Windows Explorer is forcing Photo mail in WLM 2011 you have to despite the program settings.

When selecting the images to send, include a non-image file. This could just be a dummy.txt file that should be in the same folder.

To create that non image file to the photo folder just Right click the window that has the photos and then New--> Text Document

Select your photos including the non-image file RIght click again pick Send to--> Mail recipient you'll still get the option to resize the images, but they'll end up attached rather than a photo mail. You can then Right click the dummy.txt file and REMOVE it from the message before sending.

Ok, I hate skydrive and wanted it the way it used to be before Microsoft fixed it. Not happening, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

If you right click on the photo/photos you want to send and click copy, you can then open and email and in the message body right click and hit paste. You can resize like always and you are done!

Old Version of MSN Messenger Live 2009 (14.0)

Right-clicking is an essential method to attach an image to a new email message. There is no better way or better workaround that is as practical as the sendto, mail, resize image. It's just as important as being able to copy and past files from one folder to another.

You will not be able to uninstall Windows Live 2012 then install Windows Live 2009. Unfortunately you'll have to do a clean install of Windows 7, 8, or 10. For me, it was worth it.

I embedded a direct link to the file at Oldapps. The file is 134MB and you should save it forever. It works great on XP, W7, W8, W8.1 and W10. You just have to use it in W7 compatibility mode on Windows 10. Just click "mail" and "silverlight" when you install it. The other crap (crap to me) isn't worth it.

I think Microsoft was out of it's mind removing the sendto, mail, resize. It was perfect in OE, Vista Mail and Live Mail 2009. I swear stupidity runs amok in the dev-shed.
