I’m not sure any of these will be missed, though I have known a few people to use Movie Maker in the past, since it was occasionally useful. Is it still going to be free at the Windows Store?

Come to think of it, I haven’t heard of anyone actually looking for software at the Windows Store in quite a while. I have to wonder how many dozen people still visit their site, and why.

I loved Window Live Mail and Calender in Windows 10, I will miss it

I loved Windows (NOT LIVE) Mail from Vista, too. Only thing good about Vista. Didn’t do me any good, though. The Lord Microsoft giveth and taketh away!

I like Windows Live Mail too and still use it under Windows 10.

Looks like I’ll have to switch yet again! :rolleyes:


I could never tell the difference between Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, and Outlook Express. I used to like Outlook Express, but lately, I’m only using Thunderbird on my desktop and K9 Mail on my phone.
