    See Option 2. You will have to unhide hidden folders (https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/9...dows-10-a.html) Hide them again after you are finished.
    Finally was able to see that toolbar by clicking on the "View" tab. The "hidden" option was and is selected (box is ticked). Do I need to deselect this box? Thanks.

    The only two options are "Pin to Start" and "Pin to Taskbar." There is no "Create Shortcut" option when I right click on "Windows Live Mail." Any idea where/how to create a shortcut for it?
    That is a big difference of Windows 10 with its predecessors.

    Well, I dont have WLM, I am siting an example using VLC Media Player.

    Start > All Apps > VideoLAN. I click on VideoLAN to expand it. VLC Media Player is under it.
    Right Click on Vlc Media Player > More > Open File Location. Like the image below:

    Now, When I click on "Open File Location", I see a Shortcut of VLC Media Player is there, already.

    Just copy it (not cut) and paste in the desired location, that is ....
    Code:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
    Done.

    Now apply the hide back. Restart.

    Make a shortcut of Windows Live Mail on your desktop.
    Copy the shortcut in that location.
    Close the folder.

    Restart to check if it is added.
    I was able to create a shortcut, yay. But it's not possible to paste a shortcut into that folder. Message reads: "Windows can't create a shortcut here."

    I'll see if I can achieve it via essenbe's method or the additional instructions you gave.

    Thanks.

    WHY??

    And it is just the method that essenbe suggested. Nothing else.

    Moreover, I would not suggest you without being sure.

    Arc's method will work. If you will give me a few minutes, I will show you how it works.

    Dutch, I'm sorry, but I was trying to make a video of it. For some reason it won't upload. So,....

    Go to start>all Programs>Windows Live Mali, right click it and select more> open file location. It will open to the WLM file. Right click that file and select send to Desktop (as shortcut).

    Go to C:/Program Data/Microsoft/Windows/Start menu/Programs/Startup . Copy the shortcut on your Desktop and Paste it in the Startup window. it will tell you you have to provide permission, but just click continue. As soon as it finishes, you're done. It should startup next time you restart.

    I got it to upload finally, but it isn't right and was just a quick video to show you how. It works on my system.

    Copy of WLM Run at Startup - YouTube

    Finally got the shortcut pasted into the Startup folder :-)

    When I tried yesterday and earlier today, I was selecting "Paste shortcut" (logical, right?) but kept getting the error message "Windows can't create a shortcut here." ("Create" and "paste" are two different things. Oh well . . .) So then selected "Paste" instead and as you said, I had to click on "Continue," and then it was added!

    Thanks very much for your patience!
