I've now downloaded Moz T'bird. However, I cannot import the address book from Windows Live Mail.

I'd head to a Thunderbird forum next.

They discuss that software and if it's a bug they usually enter it for a fix.

Importing can be limited but did you try the old TWO STEP? That is, did you export it from Live before trying to import it?

Since this is widely discussed I'll stop here.

And there are open discussions about export and importing. Since folk can add fields to these import/export I see where most folk may write it's buggy.

Sorry but I wonder if I should have written something else.

HOWEVER, I'm finding the newer to PC folk to wonder why all these apps have issues. For that we have to learn how we got here. That history does not fit in this small space.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
