Internet Explorer Tweaks - Quickest E-mail Ever

If you're like me, there are a couple of people that you send electronic mail to each and every day.
Well, instead of opening your mail client, then opening a new mail, and then addressing your contact, we can actually perform all of the above in one quick click!

  • create a new shortcut, by right clicking on the desktop, hit "new", hit "shortcut".
  • In the box that pops up, type "mailto:", and then enter the recipient's email address.

For instance to create a shortcut to me, you would enter mailto:

Save the shortcut on the desktop, or in the Start menu, or quick launch.

Create as many of these shortcuts as you like, and when you hit the shortcut, a letter pre-addressed pops right up, you're good to go.
