I’m new to windows 8 pro so just tried to add my hotmail account to it and it worked fine. Now, trying to remove my account but there is no such friendly way to do this!

author has described controls or All Program option which I’m not able to see here.

To remove a Windows Mail account

    Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.

    Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    Click the account you want to remove, and then click Remove.

Where is Tools menu? or … rest of it?

Can somebody walk me through this?
