Windows 10: Windows Live Mail restarts after closing

    Windows Live Mail restarts after closing

    My wife and I have accounts on our desktop computer running Windows 10 Home. When my wife closes her Windows Live Mail client it reopens again within seconds. If she then closes it again it stays closed. When I close Windows Live Mail I do not have this problem.

    I have tried repairing all Windows Essentials programs but this hasn't helped. I'd be grateful for any suggestions on how to put this right.

    Just use Windows 10's Mail app.
    Microsoft killed off everything Windows Live like 5 years ago.

    Windows Live Mail 2012 from Windows Essentials is no longer supported. I'm afraid you will just have to move on to another application.

    Windows 10 comes with the Mail App, so set that up whilst looking around for another suitable application.

    Thanks for the replies. I realise that Windows Live Mail is no longer supported, but I was hoping that someone might know a way to rectify the automatic-restarting problem.
