    The method for your version (2012) is the same as it was (for configuration) in Vista and Windows 7.
    - open the respective Windows Essentials 2012 application and click on the blue button (upper right) to access the Options menu.

    Hi, Housetrained.

    As Winston said: Same in Win8 as in Vista and Win7.

    I just now noticed that the famous "anonymous" button in the upper left
    corner of the WLM window now has a label: "File". Not sure when this
    changed. I've always referred to it as the "button with no name" because we
    had to hover the mouse over it for the Tool Tip to pop up with the unhelpful
    label: Windows Live Mail.

    But if your click on that File button, you'll get a context menu with
    several items, including Options and one of the Options is Mail; this
    produces the same screen that OE called Tools. If you right-click on File |
    Options | Mail, you'll get the chance to Add to the Quick Action Toolbar.
    If you aren't yet familiar with the QAT, this is a good time to get
    acquainted. It can be a real timesaver.

    Install the "Pre Sinofshit ribbon" 2009 version.
    It works well.
    No prompts to upgrade to the latest rubbish versions.
