Using Win 7 with Live Mail 2012. Have reserved Win 10 upgrade. When I upgrade, will my Live Mail contacts be preserved or will I have to recreate them in Win 10? Thanks.

Hi Artbuc :)

I think that Windows Live Mail saves information locally on the system in a file, so that file will be loaded once you open back Windows Live Mail under Windows 10 and therefore all your contacts should be there.

If you want, you can also export your contacts right before the upgrade just in case, and then import them back in Windows Live Mail if they didn't get transferred.
