Windows Live Mail Folders how to display all at once

  Muergo 23 Jul 13

I haven't posted on this forum for months so answer to my question may have been asked before, I apologise for my faded memory now I'm over 70,(just).

Windows Live mail folder column hides many folders which I can only find by tediously clicking on the arrows next to a folder whereupon it expands to show many others.

How can I get it to show ALL of the folders and not hide any preferably in alphabetical order.?

I'm not sure how you have your Mail set up.

Mine has my name as a Default Account with an arrow next to it which when selected shows (or hides) all the primary folders.

You may need to set up your account(s) with the files you want in each. Have a look at this set up guide.

If the above fails to help, do a search for "set up live mail accounts"; there are videos to be found as well.
