    Delete button on Windows Live Mail on Windows 8 (desktop)


    Hello Guys,

    Just a quickie, I find the position of the delete annoying, I'm sure I will get used to it but I'd like it on the middle of the toolbar so I can click up to delete then down to click on next mail. I can see a way of moving the toolbar buttons around like you could in Vista. Does anyone know of a way?

    "This was my virgin post on the Eight Forums, I think this website is going to be very useful for my transition to Windows 8. Got to say I tried the preview release of Windows 8 and hated it with a passion so much so I deleted in within 30 minutes. I tried another install a few months later after finding out that Microsoft is letting users upgrade for £25 so I thought I'd give it another go. I still found it frustrating but tried a few of the Start Menu apps and warmed to it. After having it installed for a week with the Start8 Start button app which gives you the best of both worlds I'm starting to love it, I purchased a SAMSUNG SSD 840 Pro 512 GB and did a fresh format/install it's really quick. I'm having a few crashing issues which I will post to the correct forum

    Thanks,

    Tony

    If you are talking about the Quick Toolbar. Click on the Icon on the right, un-check everything then re-check in the order that you want to display

    I am sorry you are out of luck, you can only customize the quick tool bar. You can add an item from the ribbon by right click then select add to the quick toolbar, then you can select to show below the ribbon or just minimize the Ribbon

    That's a shame that customisation is being removed, I'll get used to it.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure it's being removed, but more like giving the responsibility to the people and the community to make the changes they see fit.

    At least, that's my hope. But since I don't program, I really have no clue.

    I would like to move it too. It's so close to the Junk you can hit that instead of Delete. I did that by mistake on the Seven Forum and got banned.

    I just find it irritating have to move my mouse diagonally across the screen from my messages to the delete button
