E-mail Desktop Shortcut

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help

E-mail Desktop Shortcut

If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t open your e-mail client while browsing the Web, this tip will come in very handy for you! Just when you’re reading something interesting on the Internet or you find something of interest that you want to refer back to later on, you don’t want to have to open your e-mail client just to do so. Am I right? Well, it sounds like you need an e-mail shortcut right on your desktop. And here’s how you can get one!

Step 1: Point to an empty area on your desktop and right click your mouse. When a window opens, click on New and then choose Shortcut.

Step 2: In the previous step, a square window opens that allows you to create a shortcut. In the empty space, type In the space where it says “yourcontact” and “,” you need to insert the actual e-mail ID of someone you e-mail on a regular basis. For example, if you want to create a shortcut to e-mail WorldStart, you can type “” and then hit Next.

Step 3: Lastly, you need to name the shortcut. Something like “E-mail Friend” works well, because you’ll remember what it’s for. Once that’s done, click on Finish and presto, your e-mail shortcut is ready and waiting on your desktop.

This is a neat little time saver for anyone. Give it a try today!
