Outlook Express Icon

Sun Dec 14, 2008 11:28 am

When I downloaded MailWasher I deleted the OE icon from my desktop and deleted it from the Programs in XP. How can I get it back?

Of course I can view OE through the Mail Program of MW but sometimes it is quicker just clicking on OE.

How about installing another mail program like Thunderbird from Mozilla. It is a freebie. :thumbsup

If you go into "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\" and look for the file called "msimn.exe" >> right click on this and select Send To >> Desktop (create shortcut) >> this will create a shortcut on your desktop probably called "Shortcut to Outlook Express" so for aesthetics too you can right click on this and rename to just "Outlook Express"
