I have a new WIN10 PC and have downloaded and installed the latest Thunderbird, ver. 52.5.0. It's all working except for setting up the mail folder filters. I do not see any menu or button that mentions the filters. On my other PC in the Tools menu there is Message Filters tab. Is it hidden somewhere? Did I get a bad download or have the removed the Filter function? Any help or hints much appreciated.

Did you enable the menu toolbar? Press the ALT key to temporarily enable it and then permanently enable it using tools -> layout.

Hi, click right mouse button somewhere on top space and it should show your toolbars list. Your Menu Bar should be checked . Once you got Menu Bar the Filter option is right there.
I wish I could attach a screenshot I did...
Many thanks to all the folks who help me with my problems. :)
