unable to get back to start page
When I deleted a large batch of old emails from a local folder, the page that showed up was the inbox without any view and other buttons. When I close and restart, I see for an instant the start page and then only the inbox. How do I get back to the start page showing the local folders and contorl buttons? Do not know enough to understand the help message solutions.

how do I post the screen shot to this page? Need more help, not very literate on details.
The inbox tab does not have a "X" to close it to return to start page of email. When logging in, there is a flash of the start page but then shows the inbox with no means of navigating away form that page and showing the local folders.

Save the screenshot as an image file.
Underneath the text box where you type your reply is a 'Browse' button where you can add the screenshot image file.
All I have is an inbox with no symbol to close the inbox to get access to my local folders page on Thunderbird. Is there a ay to walk me though any solution that I did not understand from what I read in the help material. Each did not seem to address the problem I am facing. Each solution assume that there is a view choice which I do not see, no tab except for inbox tab. I was trying to delete old messages from two computers ago that I had backed up on this computer which now very slow and a friend advise me to reduce the size of the inbox that had close to 6000 messages and the Thunderbird files of message is sizeable. I do not do very well with the printed material that is difficult for me to transform to what I need. Problem unresolved. Please advise.
Please post your screenshot. It isn't rocket science.
unable to post to add images. I can do rocket science. I cannot resolve problems with screen shots that shows only the inbox and menu bar. How to get back to start page showing local folders. Don't assume anything about my ability to deal with keyboards and control keys..
