If I have understood the question correctly, it should be quite easy.

Obviously you need to have set up an account before a shortcut can be created, assuming you have done this for your parents already, please follow the directions below.

Firstly, Visit the Yahoo home page. Click the link that says "Mail."

When the next page opens it will either be the login page, or if you have logged in before and saved your password, you'll go right to your webmail.

When the login page opens, simply right click your mouse and select "Create Shortcut."

Your computer will tell you 'a shortcut will be created on your desktop' click ok.

You should now have a suitable desktop shortcut direct to the Yahoo login screen.

You can then rename the shortcut whatever you want by right clicking the mouse again, on the shortcut, and selecting rename. You could type, Freds Email or something. Hope this helps.

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.

I am unable to attach any files on yahoo as there are parental controls activated


If you are a minor, the only solution is to ask your parents whether they think you are responsible enough to manage your own Yahoo account. Yahoo's new parental controls are global, meaning that they affect all Yahoo services-- something your parents may not know. The decision is up to them, but you can improve your chances of getting the controls modified or removed by displaying consistently reliable and responsible behavior, both online and in the real world. If you need to send attachments for schoolwork, but there are younger children in the house who still need controls, your parents may share their password with you. See http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/settings/settings-20.html.

If you are not a minor, and you own your Yahoo account, you can remove controls several ways. In all cases you must be signed in as the primary account holder. If you have a Yahoo toolbar, click on the "Yahoo! Plus" button and go to "Parental Controls" -> "Edit Settings." If you do not use a Yahoo toolbar, you can go to your Yahoo start page and select "My Account." From the "My Account" link in the portal or the Yahoo! Plus button menu, you can reach the My Account page. At the bottom of the My Account page is a "Parental Controls" section. Click on "Edit Settings" to get to your Parental Control settings.

I want to have YAHOO MAIL logo on 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.

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 http://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 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.

My yahoo mail shortcut on my desktop takes me directly to my inbox. When I click on it I get a constantly flashing screen that goes from inbox to a blank screen, inbox blank screen at a rate of about 1...


You may have saved the short cut without the User Name and Password typed in your Yahoo Email Log On page. (And it's unable to log on).

Try creating a new short cut and make sure that info is included on the short cut icon.
