Windows 7: WLE 2009 or WLE 2011

11 Jul 2011   #1

W7 64 Bit
WLE 2009 or WLE 2011

Focusing mainly on Windows Live Mail 2009 I am curious to see how many people tried WLE 2011 then switched back to WLE 2009.

Why I reverted back to Windows Live Essentials 2009

1. streamlined toolbar
2. no hassles when right clicking 'sendto mail recipient' attach and resize images
3. no hassles with Skydrive after using 'sendto' for the first time
4. faster loading

Windows Live Messenger 2009
1. faster loading (run in XP mode)
2. access to blocked senders
3. can be configured and shrunk to teeny-weenie so it just shows new email (that's all I use it for is a reminder that I have new email ready to download)

If you chose to revert to WLE 2009, please add your thoughts. If you are happy with WLE 2011----good for you but please do not advocate WLE 2011 in this thread. Thanks.

I went back to 2009 and excluded Essentials and Hotmail and, I don't know...found all three intrusive,unnecessary. Somehow it still works. But in W7IE9, all the fonts are fixed and way too small and that's terrible for old eyes. Thanks for asking.

My version fav. is WLE 2010. It can DL Live Photo Gallery without including 'Movie Maker'.
