You got me.I have it on my Taskbar but can't remember how I got it there.

I presume you have it downloaded can you right click it and send it to the desktop or taskbar.

Try search and right click on WLM and down the bottom it should say pin to Taskbar.

Mine is already pinned to the Taskbar so when I do it now it says unpin from taskbar so I would assume thats how you would do it.

In the start page right click WLM and pin to taskbar. Right click the icon on the taskbar and in the list that opens, right click WLM and select properties. From that list that opens you can open the file location under the Shortcut tab, once opened find wlmail.exe in the list. Right click that and in the menu select create shortcut. It will create a shortcut icon on your desktop.

Thanx rdave13. Just a small problem. I cannot find WLM on my start page. I understand WLM is part of Live Essentials. So I looked in 'Programs' and L.E. is there. So I clicked on 'Repair' and it took about 20 minutes to do that . But I still have no WLM tile on my start page. How do I get access to WLM ? Mystery - or what ?

You'll need to download Windows Essentials.

Open your Boot drive and go into Programs Folder then Live Mail and the Icon you are looking for (wlmail) is in there, just right click and put it on your Desktop.

I should have added that the Icon (wlmail) is in the Mail Folder within the Live Mail Folder.

Sorry about that.
