    WLM Win 8.1 Emptying all folders

    It only happens randomly. She uses the e-mail from her desktop and not from the start screen. She has her computer set so she does not have to sign in each time also. When she shuts down and reopens it will automatically go to the desktop without logging in.

    WLM Win 8.1 Emptying all folders

    I've never had this problem with my WLM either. She used a Hotmail address when she set up her Win 8.1, then she installed WLM and only uses that account. She uses a POP account for her WLM. I do the same thing and I have no problems like she does. She never uses the Hotmail Account for anything.

    Despite Imminent Retirement, More Users Move to Windows XP

    I'm now using Win 8.1, but I was raised in the era if it's not broken why replace it. That is exactly how I feel about most things. Lots of seniors just can't afford it. This will be the last computer I will ever buy. People living on $1000.00 a month just can't afford new computers and that...
