    I followed some instruction on the internet (shell:sendto and create Desktop (create shortcut).desklink but it's still missing (



    Please help me

    / UPDATE-SOLVED
    I've followed all the instruction and suggestion on the Internet, do every way. But now I realize that my W8.1's version is a Lite version (using WinReducer8.1). Someone who create this version had removed Windows Mail (Send To Desktop Shortcut) so every solution on the Internet is impossible to solve. Finally I have to reinstall an offcial windows and STD is back
