Comcast has changed from POP to IMAP for windows Live Mail. What changes do I need to make on my PC running Windows 10?

Comcast informed me they changed from POP to IMAP which is why my Windows Live Mail no longer worked.  I'd like to know how to reconfigure my PC computer settings (WIN 10) to IMAP so I can continue to use Live Mail.

You can find the setings here for both IMAP and POP3. Either one will work, but Comcast recommends IMAP if you have your email enabled on more than one computer or other device------------------
