Live is many software titles so why use it if it fails and can't be fixed?

Let's hear what software this is and then find a replacement.

I'm willing to change now. What do you recommend? I just tried to drag and d a pic from my desktop into gmail and it just said are you sure you want to leave this page.

What I was asking.

Was which Live software title this was. Now it appears and I'm guessing this is that Live Mail product.

I've found the support for MSFT's Live software to be rarely good. As to drag and drop pictures, that's about where it was a decade ago. Newer PC users are a little taken aback at how archaic things are.

I have a Gmail acct in IE, wanted to get it into Chrome and I find MY DAUGHTER'S email is there. All of it and active. Also I've been finding search results highlighted purple when I'm sure I was never there. Are we on each other's computers?

Here's something interesting.

I'm finding folk taken aback when they find things like this. That is, many think the APPs and OSes are all fixed now that the industry has had decades to work this out.

Nothing is farther from the truth.

From another discussion, a GMAIL NOTIFIER might help but I don't use it so I can't comment further.
