Open yahoo mail from my keyboard buttons

By oct714

  1. I have an HP Easy Access Keyboard. It has several extra customizable buttons, and one of them will launch an e-mail app I don't use:HOTMAIL. The one I use is YAHOO

    I tried to change it in "Internet Options", tab "Programs", but under "E-mail" option, it only has : Hotmail, Microsoft office outlook, MSN Explorer, and Outlook Express.
    Does anyone know how can I add "YAHOO" to the list, so that I can choose it as my default e-mail app?.

    I think you have to go to Control Panel then Keyboard and change it somewhere in there. Also,

    Check Your Yahoo! Mail Account From the Keyboard

    To go to the Inbox and check for new messages in Yahoo! Mail quickly:

    * Press m.
    - To retrieve mail from external POP accounts as well, press Shift-M.

    Check Your Yahoo! Mail Classic Account From the Keyboard

    To check your Yahoo! Mail Classic account for new messages from the keyboard

    * press Ctrl-Shift-C from anywhere in Yahoo! Mail Classic, Calendar, Notepad or the address book.

    This keyboard shortcut takes you to your Yahoo! Mail Classic Inbox and refreshes it.

    Note: Yahoo! Mail Classic keyboard shortcuts may not work with older browsers. Browsers they will work with include Internet Explorer 6 or later, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.
