With Windows Vista, when you minimize the window of Windows Live Mail, its icon is placed in the notification area next to the clock, helping you to quickly see when new messages arrive. Unfortunately with Windows 7 or Windows 8, this option has disappeared and in this tutorial I will show you how to return it back.


To get started follow steps below

Step 1: From your desktop or Start menu right mouse click on the Windows Live Mail shortcut.

Step 2: From context menu choose Properties.

Step 3: In the window that appears, open the Compatibility tab.

Step 4: Check the box Run this program in compatibility mode for and from drop down menu select Windows Vista (Service Pack 2).

Step 5: Save changes by pressing on OK.

Step 6: Launch Windows Live Mail. When you close the window, the program minimizes to the notification area, next to the clock but its icon is always present in the taskbar.

Step 7: Click the right mouse button on the Windows Live Mail icon in the notification area. Click the Hide When Minimized.

Step 8: Now when you minimize the window of Windows Live Mail, its icon will only be present in the system tray. Click it to reopen the software.
