Thanks to everyone for your
Sieghard, thank you for
telling me about accessing items on the task bar. I didn’t
know how easy it is.
Thank you all for
teaching me how to put any item on the desktop. I had never
learned how to do it.
And a big thanks to the
person who suggested checking Recicle. Apparently, that’s
what happened: Mail had somehow been deleted (not sure how).
So in this case, I just had to restore it and all ended
well. But now I have learned 2 new things for future use.
Thanks again. I’m so
grateful for this list.
If you still have Mail
on the taskbar, you just go to it, then press Shift+F10 and
arrow down the menu that comes up until you find “Send To”,
right arrow to expand it and again arrow down until you find
“Shortcut to Desktop”, then press enter.
Also, did you know that
if you have, let’s say 5 items in your taskbar that you can
easily and quickly open them by pressing Windows Key+1,
Windows Key+2 etc.
Here is an example, lets
assume you have the following items in the taskbar in this
Internet Explorer, Mail,
Word, Notepad, File Explorer
In this case, Internet
Explorer is item 1, Mail is to the right and item 2, then
Word is 3, Notepad is 4 and File Explorer is 5.
If you now press Windows
Key+2 from anywhere, it does not matter if you are on the
desktop or are currently using Internet Explorer or Word,
Mail will open. If you press Windows Key+1 again from Mail
you will be back in Internet Explorer, press Windows Key+4
and Notepad will open etc.
I rarely use the start
menu or the desktop since the 5 or 6 main programs I use
most of the time are pinned to the taskbar and I don’t find
it too difficult to remember which one is in which position.
I can’t imagine what I might have done.
Suddenly, the MAIL icon has disappeared from my desktop. I can
get to it by searching or going to the task bar, but having it
on my desktop worked best for me. What can I do to get it
back? I never learned how to put things on the desktop. It has
always been done for me. Can I do it without any sight? Can I
use JAWS to accomplish this?
Have a good night. I’ll check my mail
tomorrow. And thank you in advance for any help.
