Windows 7: Where is "Edit" in Windows Live Essential Email

03 Jun 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Edit feature missing in Windows Live Mail

I know this forum post is ages old but I don't see the answer here but another site has posted it and if anyone is still searching this forum, here is what I found for editing in Windows Live Mail.

With the message page you are trying to edit open, press the ALT key and a series of icons will appear in a new bar just above the message. I show them as save, undo, redo, attach file, hi priorty, low priority, and a down arrow labeled as Customize Quick Access Toolbar. Clicking the Customize Quick Access Toolbar will give several choices, one of which is show above ribbon if you want the icons to appear in the title bar instead of it's own toolbar.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have WLE 2012 and use WLM as my default client (never liked Outlook). I created a test email and put in a few bullet points, I then put my cursor at the beginning of the first bullet pointed word and clicked numbers instead of bullets, it changed them over automatically, no need to delete them and start over!

Hope this helps :)
