Will Thunderbird Work With Windows 8.

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

Lonnie from Texas writes:

I wish to install Thunderbird on a Windows 8 computer and I wonder if Thunderbird will work in Windows 8.

Lonnie, the latest version of Thunderbird should work fine with Windows 8. The only drawback is that when you choose the “share” function in the Metro/Modern interface, it will not bring up Thunderbird as an e-mail option.

For those not familiar with Thunderbird, it is a free e-mail client (similar Microsoft Mail and Outlook Express) that allows you to download your e-mail messages to your computer.

    Does Win Live Mail work on Win 7 & 8 or do I need to move to a newer client mailer? Will Thunderbird load files from from WLM and operate as conveniently as WLM did with OE?

    good to know … but did you answer his question?
