Windows 10: Address list for Thunderbird Solved

    Address list for Thunderbird


    W10 up and running very well, the only change is a new email client, recommended by an "expert" In fact it's not so different to "Outlook" I'm using "Thunderbird" as my email client. Took me some time to sort out where/how, to set up a contacts list. I got it up and running and a list of contacts on the left side of the screen. All that was required was to click the mail name and it was entered in the "to" space. However that has disappeared. Now I have to open the addresses from "tools" click on each name, the addresses then vanish so I have to start again entering a new address, ad nauseam - I'd really like to get the list on the left side again

    Perhaps click Write, View, click Contacts Sidebar?

    Yep!
    That's one way.

    Even fewer mouse clicks: Write > F9

    Also, Thunderbird will also auto-complete. If you start typing a name in the To: field, it should auto-complete.

    And: You can select a contact in the address book and press the Write button to open the compose message window and add that email address to the To: header.

    Hope this helps!
