Customer Question

I have Mozilla Thunderbird on Windows 8.1. I have lost the usual options in writing emails including the "send" button. I have attempted to customize my options but without success. Can you please help (I am 83 years of age so have not grown up with computers but the email facility is most important to me). Thanks John XXXXXX

Cannot see "help" or "about" on my screen!¬

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.

Press the alt button and the menu should open that would have help in it.
About is an option under the help menu, some newer versions may have a ? symbol instead of the word help.

I pressed alt button but no response except a window to tell me that my printer was not on-line!

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.

That should not come up unless you pressed ctrl+p, are you making sure to do it in thunderbird?
.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No, I am still on Google and your website.

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.

You would need to check help and about in thunderbird itself to get the version.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Sorry, but I was interrupted yesterday and had to go out urgently. Please forgive my ignorance but how can I be communicating to you via your website AND be on thunderbird at the same time?

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.

I apologize but I need to opt out and open to all experts.
