When I click on my icon(which has a ? mark on the side) this message comes up. The drive or network that the shortcut TREKSTOR (E).Ink refers to is unavailable make sure the disk is properly installed or...


If you don't have the Trekstor, then just delete that ICON (the one that causes the problem when you click on it).

Or, find the Trekstor, and connect it to your computer, and click the ICON.

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.

I did as above but that icon is not getting deleted


I can't understand what you meant to say. Whether you mean, your shortcut icon is deleted on the desktop or in the programme list.
As an example if your shortcut "programme" (like Microsoft word) icon is deleted than. Click on Start>Programme>Microsoft Office>In the Microsoft word "Right click" there you will see the pop down menu. In that menu click on "Send to"> choose Desktop (create shortcut)
Else open C:\ "drive">Programme Files>Microsoft office>Office12>find out winword.exe

All the Best!

The ".Ink" you refer to is really ".lnk" (the first character of the extension is a lower-case "L," as in link, not an "I"). Shortcuts use "lnk" as their file extension.

This kind of thing can happen if you install software from a networked drive and then later detach from that network, which is a common situation if you use a laptop computer that you disconnect from your office network and take home. To find the shortcut, follow these steps: Open Windows Explorer and press Ctrl-F (hold down the control key and press F) to bring up the Find dialog. Select "Local Hard Drives" in the Look in dropdown, and enter ".lnk" (or whatever the error message reported for the name of the bad shortcut) in the Named field. When you click the Find Now button, Windows will search your hard drives for the shortcut and display what it found.

Shut down icon


That is a strange problem.
I will help you to create a shortcut on your desktop for that icon, whenever you need to shutdown your computer, just click that shortcut on the icon.

Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.

In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s

The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.

The following two parameters can be used with -s:
-f Forces running applications to close without warning.
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.

The following command would shut down instantly.
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

Click the Next > button.

In the Type a name for this shortcut: textbox enter
Shutdown My Computer (or some other name of your choice)

Click the Finish button.

Whenever you want to shutdown your computer, click the shortcut on your desktop that says ShutDown My Computer, and your comptuer will shut down the usual way, the way it used to shutdown.
