How to send a file.

I'm not sure where to put this thread but I figured the General Section would do just fine.
Although I know it's a 7 Forum, I have a another quick Microsoft question regarding Windows Live Messenger.

Can some one tell me how on earth I send a file? Oddly enough, in settings there is a place to select the "My Received Files" location hitting that the file transfer capabilities still remain yet I can't find a way to send any.

Thanks.

*Running latest version of WLM.

To send a file using Windows Live Messenger, open the Windows Live Messenger window, click on Actions, Send, and scroll down to: Send a file. Then follow the on-screen directions.
