Hotmail and Windows 7

My friend has Windows 7 and a Hotmail email address. She has a very roundabout way of getting to her hotmail Account. What is the easiest way to get this on her desktop. All help appreciated

The easy way is to install Windows Live Mail and run Hotmail from there. That offers the benefit of having her mail stored on her PC rather than the Hotamil server. Should she not want to use that option she should sign into Hotmail (or got to the sign in page) and copy the address from the address bar. Go to the Desktop and right click and opt to create a shortcut. Paste the URL in the location box and name the shortcut. Clicking on this con will open Hotmail.
