    Stop opening of yahoo.com when opening email


    Whenever I open my yahoo email, it does not open straight forward, instead it open Yahoo.com page, then I have to click the mail on top right side to go to my inbox. Is there a way to open direct inbox just like Gmail because opening of yahoo.com page unnecessarily waste time.

    I don't use Y!Mail anymore. So I don't know if that still applies.................
    Open Yahoo mail > make sure you are at Inbox page > right click inside the page > click Create shortcut > click Yes to confirm.
    You now have a Y!Mail desktop shortcut. Use it to look for mails.
    Will that open straight to Yahoo Mail ?
    Will that be acceptable ?

    If you just want to check your emails, you can add your Yahoo account on Windows 10 Mail App. No need for web browser.
    I do this on both my PC and Windows Phone.

    Here's from my Windows Phone.

    Thanks, it worked. First I assumed that any one who Will click this shortcut will straightway be able to see my inbox. No, it open the sign on screen, where I put my authentication and then it opened my inbox. And certainly I wanted the same thing, thanks.

    I am waiting for badrobot or anyone else to answer my query raised to him. If you know then please clear my doubt about that because that will teach me one more thing. Though my purpose has been solved by you. After waiting for one or two days, I will mark this thread closed.

    Your question is :
    Will it keep my yahoo mail always open or it will still ask for my yahoo mail password because I do not want to keep my mail open.

    The suggestion given to you is on using the Mail app that comes with Windows 10.
    Once you have added the email account to the Mail app, the account will open to Inbox automatically. No password required.

    Like @davidhk said, it wil be automatic. Nobody else use my main PC at home so I don't mind. You may want to stick with the first suggestion.
