    Pinning Outlook to Start

    After a great deal of fiddling I have succeeded in getting Outlook to reflect my old Vista Mail, meaning I can now see my mail. trouble is that I have to connect to the internet then select Outlook from my Google taskbar and finally select my old Mail account. Is it possible to create a charm so that all I have to do is click on it in Start?

    Hello Kafka,

    If this is a website for online email, than you could use the tutorial below to pin the website to your Start screen if you like.

    If not, then you could pin the .exe file or shortcut of Outlook to your Start screen as well.

    Start Screen - Pin or Unpin App, Folder, or Drive in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
