I am embarrased to say how simple this is to solve! I found it myself on a Mocrosoft Live Mail forum dated 2007. Merely hit the ALT key and the menu appears where it belongs.

Thank you for this! I just got the new Windows Live mail and couldn't figure out where that darn toolbar was and had tried and tried everything!! Then saw this and used the alt key and the toolbar appeared. I can't figure out how to "lock" it though - does anyone know? Also my Windows live mail doesn't look as good as the one's I see on the download page for it - no icons and nothing familiar - anyone know how to fix that? Thanks!!

A little update RE the previous post: I believe if you go to TOOLS on right side of page, click, scroll down to TOOLBARS and make sure there is a checkmark in front of Menu Bar, Command Bar, and lock the toolbars you may solve your problem.

I am a new Windows Live Mail user. I can't seem to find a way to get to "Tools", "Menus", "Options", etc. I need to change some settings, add a signature, etc. and have tried everything I can think of, including using the "Alt" key suggested previously. Help!

I want my old toolbar back (File,Edit,View,Favorites,Tools and Help). I tried this Alt key,but doesn't work for me. I have a new Dell Inspiron 17r Laptop with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail. When I hit the Alt key all that happend was I got a bounch of little boxes with letters in them. What is up with this. Any suggestions?

On a Dell Vosrto running Win 7 and Live Mail, in Live Mail, the ALT brings up the little boxes, but not one for Tools. (Only the 1,2,3, F,H,O,V, & S - no T)
There is no little option to the top right where I can get a dropdown option to show Tools.

Ideas?

Thanks!

I want to 'turn on' images, and most advice is to use the tools icon.
Thanks!

i don't see tools but if you click on the blue box shown in the attached file ,you will see options .then go mail and youll see what is most of what use to be in tools of outlook express, but i don't see turn on images,if you are talking about a signature image then it is there i think , as described in this link .

Thanks, Caperjack!

A lot of my emails have images and they all appear as empty boxes with the little red x's. I have turned on my signature and can click on the option in each email to view images, but it would be a lot easier to automatically turn on the images.

good news ,just found it .
Click the Tools menu,[that blue icon i showed in the image i added to other post ] click Options, and then click the saftey options.
security tab ,
download images .
uncheck the block images and other content in a html email.save and exit

apparently it default set to block images to avoid seeing images you might not like to see .
