Windows 10

Hi Ian,
Thank you for writing back with that information. Can I remotely access your Windows 10 computer so that I can directly fix your Yahoo Messenger installation while you watch?
Remote access is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee ($15) regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,

Hello Jess,

It seems after all your hard work and me paying out there was a simple solution to the problem.

You just go to the yahoo home page and in the top left hand corner there is a smiley face. When you click that it takes you directly to the yahoo messenger box and you use it from there

Hi, thank you for writing back. I am glad that the smiley face link redirects you to a working installer of YM for your Windows 10.If you need further assistance, you can request me any time.Best regards,Jess
