    Outlook - Shortcuts to email contacts on destop

    Wondering if there is a way to put an email contact shortcut onto you desktop so that when you click on it Outlook will open new email with that contact already entered?

    If Outlook is your default email client, then right-click on the Desktop and go to New > Shortcut. Then enter as the location of the item. Name the shortcut what you want and you're done.
