Desktop icon

I recently had to have my new computer reset.  As a result, I lost all my desktop icons including my Xfinity mail icon.  How do I get it back.

Thanks

Re: Desktop icon

I did what you suggested, but the icon is not an Xfinity icon.  It just looks like Edge.  Is that what I should see?  It works.

Re: Desktop icon

I'm not sure with Edge.  I'm on a Mac so mine would be different anyway.

Official Employee

Re: Desktop icon

Hello cabizzi, if you have the icon on your desktop and it takes you to your email, then it's working. However, you can customize the icon and rename it XFINITY email or something like that. Right Click on the Icon> Towards the bottom you will see "Rename" click that and rename it. Now if you want to get fancy, you can change the picture as well. This link details how to that.
