    How to make desktop shortcut to mail app


    I guess I'm not sure if this is the correct category for this, but it's to do with the mail app. I use it to manage my mail, and I want to set up a hot key for it for my drawing tablet, but I can't find it in file explorer. So I thought I'd just make a shortcut to the app on my desktop and set the hot key to that shortcut... but I can't figure out how to do that either. I've found most all the other applications in my start menu except for the mail. Where is it?
