    How to pretty it up


    OK I have Windows 8, and am using Windows Live Mail which I down loaded from day one.

    Question:: How do I put an avatar and signature on bottom of my e-mail so it is always there automatically?

    I have never done this before, but noticed some people do have it.

    You probably have to set it up in an html file which you can embed an avatar in your sig.

    OK, I probably should point out that you are talking to a 74 year old, with a reasonable grip on my computer but a long way from being a Computer Guru. Having said that, I got this far.

    The avatar is currently stored as,
    Rich text Document RTD

    When I click the down arrow I get the following choices.
    Open Office XML Document
    Open Document Text
    Text Document
    Text Document -MS-DOS Format
    Unicode Text Document

    Where do I find html ?
    Thanks for your interest in helping me as I like a bit of a mental challenge, they say it helps to fight Alzheimer's.

    OK. Normally you have to use html editor. However, to make it easy I make one for you.
    just download the zip file, extract the files to your C:\ folder then set up your sig as follows:

    EDIT: use notepad to edit the sig.html file and change the text to your name, email, phone, avatar etc...

    Yes, what is above is exactly what I would like, but I am not having any luck in changing the file type to anything other than what I listed above.

    Windows 7 was a breeze, and I am seriously thinking about going backwards.

    OK that is not correct, and I will keep battling along, but it is testing for an old brain.
    If you can give me the instructions in Kindergarten Language as a final effort, I will give it another bash.
    I really appreciate your patience topgundcp.

    What I want to put on the bottom of my e-mails is only this

    OK, Now I have spread my problems across the World, and some 6 year old will probably POP UP and tell me how to do it.
