Re: Windows Live Mail Keyboard shortcuts

To quickly access the Hotmail account, and directly read your messages, just create a shortcut to Hotmail on your desktop. To do so, just follow these steps:-
  • Right click on the desktop, select "New" then "shortcut".
  • In the "Create Shortcut", enter the following command line:
    Code:
    % windir% \ System32 \ rundll32.exe "% ProgramFiles% \ Internet Explorer \ HMMAPI.DLL" OpenInboxHandler
  • After you copy / pasted the command line above, click "Next".
  • In the next window, enter the name you want for this shortcut (eg Hotmail).
  • Finally click "Finish", your shortcut to Hotmail will be present on the desktop.
