I have an icon for Windows Live Mail in the taskbar (Windows7) but it doesn't appear either in the Start Menu or on the Desktop.I can't copy it from the taskbar, and when I accidentally unpinned it from there,the only way I could access the mail again was by System Restore.Is there some way I can get it in the Start Menu and on the Desktop ?
Thanks both for trying-but,right click only gives options to open/close program or unpin it.As I said, Live Mail doesn't appear in my Start Menu for some reason, so I can only open it by clicking the Taskbar icon.
" but it doesn't appear either in the Start Menu....."
That's odd. What happens when you click the Start button and immediately start typing "windows live"? The program you're looking for should instantly appear at the top of the list before you even finish typing its name. If that works for you then you can right-click it and choose "Send To" -> "Desktop (create shortcut)".
If that doesn't work then open "Computer" and navigate to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Mail folder. Locate the file called wlmail and send it to the Desktop as per the instructions above. Finally, close that folder window, go to your Desktop and right-click that shortcut you just created and rename it to "Windows Live Mail" (although you can name anything you like).
