Using Windows 11.  There is nothing in the top left corner!

Should I just uninstall and reinstall the program?

I would encourage it.  But I only send a thank you email for states that
have been really hard to get, which for me has been North and South Dakota
and a few states in the North East.  ;-)

On only one occasion was I involved in an email exchange setting up a FT8
sked and it was mutually beneficial for us both.  I personally wouldn't be
the least bit offended if someone requested an FT8 sked with me.  I'd be
happy to accommodate.  I know others might disagree and that's cool.  As
long as one is not breaking any rules or inconveniencing someone else I
wouldn't see the harm in it.

I was shocked to get a message this way. I didn't know it existed or that
it was enabled. (Later I noticed that Gridtracker seems to have that
capability too, BTW.) I would feel a little strange using it for 'listen to
me!', but I have been tempted to use it to thank someone one in a new state
or country after the contact. That's just me.
