Export Mail - issue with browse button

Trying to export my email messages. When i get to the step where i get to "Browse" to where to export to
1) The browse button does not work
2) I cannot fill in the folder location - to outline where to export to
3) The next button is not selectable..

Consequently i can not move forward and can't perform an export.

I am running in Safe Mode, as i am trying to back up data, and email, before migrating to a new PC. Mail seems to work otherwise (although i am offline as in safe mode).

Any one else come across this or a similar problem.

Windows Mail version is 6.

Alternatively is there a way of copying a single file (.pst ?). I am looking to migrate either to Win 7 or Win 8.1....

Interesting question. I don't use Outlook or Windows Mail. However, I wouldn't think that migrating to a different operating system would affect the Windows Mail, if you use the same account. I think the settings, including your address book, are kept online. You might have to use Windows Live Essentials if you go to Win 7 or 8. Not sure where you're going to find Win 7 unless some big box store happens to have some copies left over.
