Hi again -
Windows 7 SP1 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop -
A quick (I hope) minor problem with creating a shortcut to my Yahoo mail on the desktop.
I can save this item in Favorites, but I am unable to get a result when I click "Send to Desktop".
The option of "Sending" comes up if I Right Click on it, but there is never a shortcut there ??

This has never been a major problem but it gets annoying that I need to open Favorites to check my Yahoo mail.
On my XP this has never been a problem, and it is always there, and operating, but I try this every week and get no result on the Win 7.

Any ideas please -

Thanks For Looking -

Have you tried clicking on the address bar (www.yahoo.com........) at the top of your browser and dragging it to your desktop?
