    I pretty much have it all set up but in my groups, I can't find where to set
    the messeges to expand like they do with Win XP. You know when you post a
    message there is a plus sign beside it and to see the ans. to that post you
    just click on the plus and the message expands. I cannot find where to make
    it do that in Windows Express. Can anyone please help?

    Since you failed to state which program you're using, I'll just give you an
    answer that fits one of the possibilities:
    Tools, Options, Read.

    What's Windows Express?

    It is Windows Express Mail it comes with windows 7 it is somewhat like
    Outlook Express but different in many ways. They don't have Outlook Express
    anymore for mail or groups. I get my messages on the same page and email.
    I am also using Giganews, but that really has nothing to do with the set up.
    Right now I am on my laptop in bed sick. But thought I would ask if anyone
    had ran across this problem and was able to solve it. I have found just
    about everything else but that. I have to be missing something somewhere
    but I sure don't know where.

    Do you mean Windows Live Mail? On the menu Bar: View | View By
    Conversation. Check it.

    There is a small solid > in front of the thread instead of the + sign.

    Don't see the Menu Bar?

    The Alt button will temporally enable the Menu Bar, or click on the Menus
    button to the left of the Help button and enable the Menu Bar.

    No, there is no program with that name. Do you mean Windows Live Mail?


    > it comes with windows 7




    No, it doesn't come with Windows 7. In fact no e-mail program comes
    with Windows 7. If you bought a Windows 7 computer that came with
    Windows Live Mail, it was because the vendor who sold it to you
    installed Windows Live Mail, not because it comes with Windows 7.


    > it is somewhat like
    > Outlook Express but different in many ways.



    Then almost certainly you are talking about Windows Live Mail. It
    essentially the latest version of Outlook Express, but with a
    different name.


    > They don't have Outlook Express
    > anymore for mail or groups.



    Correct. Windows XP was the last version to include Outlook Express.

    Yes, that is what I meant, I thought I said that but looking back I don't
    see it. I will give this a try today, thank you so much. I have been
    batting my head against the wall putting everything together for about 2
    weeks now and heard of this group yesterday evening. When I get to my other
    computer I will give it a try and let you know.

    Windows Live Mail. I'm sorry I got that wrong. It is all so new to me and
    I have had such a hard time getting it going, I wish I had heard of this
    group before.

    Hi Stinkweed,
    Windows 7 is pretty and fun, but takes a bit of getting used to.

    Windows Live Mail isn't half as user friendly as Outlook Express.
    Correction : it's a lot worse than Outlook Express.

    There is a Microsoft Communities group for Windows Live Mail:
    microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop

    When you have everything set up and find a few things not working as in OE,
    please tell Microsoft to change it back the way it was by going to Help>Send
    Feedback.

    Have fun and take care :)

    Oh yea, I had just bought a new piece of software and lost it. I have
    learned not to click on the mouse if you don't know what it means, I have
    learned you can't move one program from one machine to another successfully,
    that was the last straw. Well I guess it is what made the whole thing go
    haywire. I have learned never to try to set your computer back to another
    date.. I just learned a whole lot of things.... :-(

    Hi Grenou, I haven't seen you for awhile on the net. How are you? The
    rotten thing is it took me 2 weeks of pure extreme stress setting the stupid
    computer up. I almost had it made, then I tried to put a program I have in
    my laptop into it. That is when things started to go to you know where in a
    handbasket. It just got worse and worse till it just doesn't work right.
    Not for the purposes I wanted it. Tell the gang at the group I said Hi!
