Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.

i want my yahoo mail on my desk top how can i do it


I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but any of these ways will put a Yahoo! Mail shortcut icon on your desktop.

To put a Yahoo! Mail shortcut icon on your desktop, go to Yahoo! Mail page http://www.mail.yahoo.com/ , at the top of your screen click File, a menu drops down, put your mouse cursor on Send, a menu pops up, click Shortcut to Desktop.

Another way: Go to Yahoo! Mail page, right click on a blank space, a menu pops up, click Create Shortcut, a pop up asks "Do you want to put a shortcut to this website on your desktop", click Yes.

Another way: If it is listed in All Programs: Click Start > All Programs > right click on Yahoo! Mail > point to Send To and on the menu that pops up click Desktop ( create shortcut ).

Another way: Right click on desktop > point to New and on the menu that pops up click Shortcut > in the box that opens type www.mail.yahoo.com > click Next and in the next box that opens type Yahoo! Mail and click Finish.

Another way: Go to Yahoo! Mail Page > left click and hold on the blue bar at the top of your broeser window and pull down far enough to expose the desktop, or drag one side in or the bottom up (if it won't move, click the box beside the X at the top right corner of the screen to Restore Down) > left click and hold on the icon on the left of the address on the address bar and drag it to the desktop and release it, then you can minimize the window and left click on the icon and hold and drag it to where you want it on your desktop.

Hello there!

Any of these ways will put a Yahoo! Mail shortcut icon on your desktop. If you want another Yahoo! shortcut instead of Yahoo! Mail, just substitute that Yahoo! page for Yahoo! Mail in the instructions.

To put a Yahoo! Mail shortcut icon on your desktop, go to Yahoo! Mail page http://www.mail.yahoo.com/ , at the top of your screen click File, a menu drops down, put your mouse cursor on Send, a menu pops up, click Shortcut to Desktop.

Mail Page > left click and hold on the blue bar at the top of your browser window and pull down far enough to expose the desktop, or drag one side in or the bottom up far enough to expose the desktop (if it won't move, click the box beside the X at the top right corner of the screen to Restore Down) > left click and hold on the icon on the left of the address on the address bar and drag it to the desktop and release it, then you can minimize the window and left click on the icon and hold and drag it to where you want it on your desktop.

it takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
