I read an answer, "Click WRITE to open your composition window. On the Menu go into OPTIONS - PRIORITY - HIGHEST." I could find no way of doing that.

I have uused Thunderbird for a couple of years and never needed its menue.

That's just incredible! Anyway, I've attached a screenshot of the menu option you need, as it appears in Thunderbird's Write window and NOT the main window. The write window is visibly very different from the main window, so knowing which window you'll find the option should be easy.

Press Alt to show the Menu Bar in the Write window, then select from the Options menu (see picture).

Sorry but I took a "Snipping Tool" snip but can't work out how to load it to this forum.

I then took a written copy of what my Email page looks like when I just open it up.

Top line. “ File Edit View Go Message Events Events and Task Tools Help

Next line Get Messages Write Chat Address Book Tag Quick Filter

I searched each title with no joy.

When you click Write, a new window opens for you to compose/write a message. This window has its own menus. Is this your first time using Thunderbird?

After you save the snip in a convenient location on your computer, use the Browse... button at the bottom of the reply box on this forum and select the saved snip. When the snip is successfully uploaded, you will see its thumbnail (a small preview), then you can post your reply.

I have uused Thunderbird for a couple of years and never needed its menue. Perhaps I should make something clear, not an excuse for my lack of knowledge but simple facts. I left school in 1952 as thick as two planks with no qualifications to be a Bricklayer Apprentice. When that was completed I went into the Army and on completing my contract I obtained employment in a car factory production area where I spent 12 years. I suddenly decided that I would like an education and got a place with a Open Learning University. Apart from my atrocious spelling I enjoyed it so much that after four years I obtained a place at Oxford. It was like going to heaven and on leaving with my now two degrees I obtained a post in H.R Management where I had some wonderful secretaries to help me with the Queens English. I was not exposed to the world of computing until I was practically fifty. When that happened it was to use computers to pass messages, in other words, a form of Word Processing. I was not involved in using Email until some years later and using the Internet after that. I was never offered any instruction on computing and if I had been I doubt that there actually existed a proper course to turn out “qualified” computer operators. I discovered that if I met a computing problem I could ask the company resident computer specialist for assistance. That way I gradually picked up word processing knowledge. I never had the need to mark an Email as urgent so I never asked. Most computer users these days started playing, working or using some form of computer before they were five years of age at least that is the experience in my family amongst our growing band of grandchildren. As a result by the time they are fifteen years of age they are competent enough to ask them to help me apart from questions such as how to mark an Email as urgent. I'm now knackered and will come back later if I may.
