    The link sent me the general website but I noticed it wasn't a live link.
    That doesn't matter much but I wondered if there is a way of making the links live?
    Click the address bar when on this page.
    Select all.
    Copy.

    Paste in email to yourself.

    Or Bookmark it.

    Your graphic Medab arrived later in the form of a link - not live - but it was very readable and now filed for posterity.
    Thanks again.

    skysurfer,

    I'm happy to hear that you got it all sorted now.

    Of course I'm a real alien. Here's a baby picture of me to prove it.

    I don't suppose Brink you had an answer to the too-small font display in WLM pages?
    It was something I mentioned I thin on page 2 of this thread.

    I'm not sure there's a setting to change the size of those fonts in WLM.

    However, if you like you could either set DPI to say 125% or turn on "Make everything on your screen bigger" to make them bigger. It'll make everything bigger as well though.

    How did that happen?
    Anyway Brink I wanted to say a big thank you - AT LAST I HAVE TWO BUTTONS, ONE TO SEND A WEBPAGE AND ONE TO SEND A LINK BY EMAIL. MANY MANY THANKS AND THANKS FOR STICKING WITH ME.

    I don't suppose you fancy working another miracle by telling me the secret way TO MAKE WLM GENERAL LAYOUT FONT LARGER.
    I've changed the font in my outgoing mails but the email listing are so small they're straining my old eyes.
    I know I can enlarge them when I read by scrolling and pushing a key I've forgotten, but it would be great to change the whole layout to something larger.
    Thanks again
    Here's one way.
    When in mail, press the Windows key and the + key to open Magnifier.

    See picture:

    Click image for larger version

    In full screen mode you can make everything bigger or smaller.
    I suggest setting changes to 25%.

    I hope this helps.

    EDIT- To make the page move right or left or up & down, move the cursor to the edge of the screen.

    When on the page or link you want to send by email: Open 'Charmsbar', select 'Share' & then 'Mail'. All you need to do is insert the recipient's name & send it along with the page's link.

    send page by email or link by email


    Download Windows an select only mail if you wish. When installed go to your control panel and select default programs. Then use the top option(set your default...) to set default and the bottom option (set program access....), reboot and then see if you can send mail as a page or as a link.
