Make a shortcut to Yahoo Mail on your computer

Create a shortcut to Yahoo Mail so that you don't have to type it into your Web browser address window every time.

  1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail in your web browser.
  2. Make sure your browser application window isn't maximized.
  3. Drag the icon next to the URL (starts with “https:”) from the left side of the address bar to the desktop.
