Hi Gene!

Yes, go ahead!

Yes, I made a real boo boo there!

Thanks a lot, Gene!

That is a powerful way to put short cuts to apps on your desktop. I learned it from someone over a year ago.

We all help each other. That is what it should be all about!

Hi David


the key command to bring up the run dialogue is the windows key + letter R


I just did what it said in the email for the knfb reader and now there is a shortcut on the desk top. I was unaware of this command.


could i put the directions on the windows 10 page up on to share with the community.

Here is how you create Short Cuts for win10 apps on your Desktop!



To open the run dialog.



In a couple of seconds, all of your win10 apps will be in a virticle list.

Press M for Mail, P for people and so on.

When you are on that app, Mail app,


Applications key or Shift+F10.

Up arrow once to create shortcut and press enter.

You will hear:

A shortcut cannot be created here, do you want to create it on the desktop instead?

Press enter, and the short cut for the Mail app will be right on your desktop.

I will paste an entire tutorial for using the Mail app later tonight for all of you to read.

It is very comprehensive, and can do so much.

Does anybody happen to know of a way to create a desktop shortcut? 

Yep.  See:

I don't know where you can get an older copy of Windows Live Mail as I don't keep anything but the most recent, even after they've gone out of support.  If you're interested in Windows Live Mail 2012, I downloaded the installer for it about 2 weeks before Microsoft pulled it from their site an you can download it from my Google Drive by activating this link
