Re: Desktop email access

If you are using Xfinity Connect (online email access):

 

Open up email.

 

Copy the URL in the address bar.

 

On your desktop, RIGHT click in an empty spot.

 

Choose NEW/Shortcut.

 

Paste the copied URL in the box.

 

Click NEXT.

 

Give the shortcut a name so you will know what it is for.

 

Click Finish.

 

*for Windows systems. No clue how to do it on other operating systems.

 

The icon will be on your desktop. Drag it to where ever you want it to be on the desktop.

 

If you do not like the icon, RIGHT click on it, choose Properties/Web Document tab/Change Icon.

Chose the one you like. Click Apply.

 

When you want to go to email, click the icon. If signed in Xfinity Connect page will open. If not signed in, the sign in page will open. Sign in, go straight to email.
