I love your email with all the wonderful advice you give to me and others.
My question is….is there a way to put a gmail icon on your computer? Otherwise I have to open IE and type it in to get to it.
Thanks for your time.

There is a way to put a shortcut to your Gmail on your desktop.
The next time you have your Gmail window open in Internet Explorer, right click on a blank spot in the window. A spot between the search bar, and the list of messages is a good place.
When you right click, a context menu will appear. Click on “Create Shortcut” in that context menu.
Note: If you don’t see, “Create Shortcut” in the context menu, try right-clicking in a different location.
After you click on “Create Shortcut” a small dialog box will pop up asking you if you want to create a shortcut to this website on your desktop. CLick the “Yes” button.
You will now have a shortcut to your Gmail right on your desktop.
