New to Windows 7, I'd like to gain some screen space by hiding the Bing bar and seeing only the Google screen. But then there is no email icon. My email is from Outlook.com, with an @msn.com address. Is there a way to add an icon to the Google screen so I can go to my email with a single click? Thanks in advance for your advice.

Are you using Outlook email client or checking mail online?

If you are using Outlook there is a way to add an icon that will open Outlook.

If you access mail online adding the icon won't work as it only opens email clients, not web mail.

Hello Fred and Welcome -
Do you have the email listed in Programs - Then Right click on it and select Send to Desktop.

If not, is there any other way that you can ?? say ?? Save it to Favorites / Bookmarks and then from there Right click and Send to Desktop.

I currently have 4 email accounts in one corner of my desktop, all by using this method, and I just open each one when I want to send or check mail - - -

Hope this helps -
