My brother got a new computer with Windows 7 and Windows Live email. I only have XP. He needs help saving emails to his documents folder. I've searched and searched and can't find anything that works for him. He can save extensions. He's not very computer literate and is legally blind. But can make out things on the large monitor he has. Anyone? Thanks.

Hello, wright3279

When you mean save an email, do you mean simply the message? If so;

1 Click the beginning of the message and then hold down the mouse.
2 Drag the mouse to the end of the message to highlight it
3 Right click and select "Copy"
4 Open word, notepad, wordpad, etc
5 Right click, then select "Paste"
6 The text should appear on the screen. On the left hand side click "File", then "Save As", and finally type in the name and click "Save"

Or, you can also do a screenshot :)

Please excuse me if I'm wrong with what you want to do, please post and tell me if I gave you the wrong fix.

I knew of this method. Since his eyesight is so bad, he has some trouble highlighting. I finally temporarily installed Windows Live Mail on my computer and it appears that simply shrinking the email window a bit and then dragging the letter onto the desktop makes a copy of it. I hope it works that way on Windows 7 also. Thanks.
