    Default No options menu in hotmail windows 8

    hi,
    I am trying to import email messages from windows vista mail to windows 8 Hotmail. However when I log-in to Hotmail the only options available to me are inbox create new email. There is no menu options such as file, options !!! I have tried the charms menu settings but it only lists accounts and only a few limited options.
    Please can some-one tell me how to get the import menu options ??
    thank you

    Patrick,

    If you are talking about the Mail APP, I've only heard that people don't like or use it. I certainly don't.

    Open IE10, Desktop browser & > outlook.com & try that.

    Even, WL Mail instead of that Mail APP.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Another thing to remember mate is that if you click on Settings in the Charms Bar, it will give you options for whatever metro-app you happen to be on right then....such as your hotmail app. Also if you open Search in the Charms, it searches the open app you have at the moment; then just type in your query.

    So---try the Charms Settings function while you have your hotmail opened up.......

    Yes, Charms will always be synced to & catering to whatever or whichever application or screen is being used @ any given moment.

    I think the OP is talking about the new Outlook.com web based page (AKA hotmail.com). In there, click the arrow next to outlook, top left corner. then select people, it's connected to the people app on the start menu page. Then click manage and click add, at the bottom you should see "import from file". That should have you fixed up.
