    reinstall live mail

    OK, I did some tweaking to my computer and dorked it up, needless to say I had to format computer. Next I reinstalled windows live mail. Once I did it I noticed that it does not look like it did before. I used to have two main windows, the accounts area and the view email area. Now I have three. The accounts, email view and now in between them an area that list the emails. I just click on one of them and it opens in the view area. It's not bad just takes some getting use to it. Was there an update to this program that I just missed. I not sure if I like it or not. Is there a way I can change it back to the way it was before.

    You can easily change the type of view:
    View, Layout, Reading pane, "At the bottom of the message list".

    I must be missing something because I don't see anything at all that comes close to view.

    Windows Live Mail hides the menu bar by default. Over near the "Help" icon
    is a menu icon. Either use it to unhide the menus (click the "Show all
    menus" item), or use the [Alt] key to show all of the menus once.

    I didn't have menu up at all, I had to use alt key. Now I see. Thanks, that did the trick.
