  • Hi thanks for the replay. I think this is a WLW question. I can not get WLW to see or reconise My second Blog. When I go to Add a Blog account it defalts to the first blog even if I am logged into the second, I am not finding a place to list the address of the second blog. Can You Help??

  • D Faire,

    Oops. Sorry 'bout that.

    The Recent Posts and Drafts should be located in the MY DOCUMENTS folder].

         C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Weblog Posts\
         C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Documents\My Weblog Posts\

    You SHOULD be able to double-click them from there, or OPEN WITH [Windows Live Writer] if the file association is broken. All the files in the folder should have a 'WPOST' extension.


    I don't understand your second question...

    Can you explain more?

    Also, for the future...

    This is an OLD forum for Windows Live Writer; Microsoft will be shutting it down soon [to be read only]... But...

    There's a NEW forum, with more activity and more Microsoft techs working it. If you have questions/suggestions for Windows Live Writer, I suggest you go there and submit your inquiry there...

    Here's the URL:


    I hope this helps...

    Until next time,

    If this answers your question, please 'Propose as answer' for others to reference..
