Recommended Posts

Make Windows 10 look exactly the way you want it to. This article has a clickable header for each subject to only the parts you are interested in instead of a big ten page article.

 

Excerpt:

 

"An operating system is only useful as it is customizable. After all -- if you can't make an OS look and act the way you want it to, then who cares if it's objectively better (faster, more powerful) than any other OS?

 

Good news, Windows 10 users: You can easily customize both the look and feel of Microsoft's new OS, and make it work for you. Here's our guide on how to make Windows 10 pretty and easy to use."

Coffee is on Dick! Helping you out would be a distinct honor for me.

 

Windows live mail went out with Windows 8 Dick, sorry. If you don't have Outlook there are several other alternatives but I will have to defer to others here about other email clients. Outlook.com is the webmail for MS now.

 

Here is a search result showing the top free email alternatives. http://www.bing.com/search?q=what+email+client+do+i+use+with+windows+10%3f&FORM=AWRE

Dick,

Stop by any time. Glad you have it working. Do a search on transferring live mail files to new computer. I believe you can copy the files, but I have no idea off the top of my head.

I-20 10 miles East of Shreveport. I'm 1.5 miles from the I-20 exit.
