Windows 10: settings in Windows Live Mail on Win 10 Solved

    settings in Windows Live Mail on Win 10


    I'm using Windows Live Mail on Win 10. My Contacts (when I click "Contacts") are set up to show "last name", "First name" which is what I want. But, when I want to compose a new e-mail and click on the "To" or "Cc" box in the address section of a new e-mail to add a contact, the names are all arranged "First name" "Last name". Any way to get that list also to sort by Last name first?

    I use WLM 2012.

    Did you do it this way ?
    click the Contacts icon at the bottom > at the ribbon, click Sort by > click Last Name.

    No, I had just ordered the columns in the Contacts page and got it Last name first by clicking on the column heading. but your method worked! Thank you. It's great to have expertise to call on in these situations. Thanks again.
