    Start Menu tiles


    I have mistakenly dragged my mail tile/ icon from the Start Menu in W.10 to the desktop.
    How can I return it to the start menu ? ( drag and drop does not work )

    I hadn't realised you could do that! I've just created a Test account to log into and try it out. The answer I found is that you should right-click on the Mail tile on the Desktop and select 'Unpin from Start'. Now right-click on it again and select 'Pin to Start'.

    Once it's back on the Start menu you can right-click on the Desktop one and delete it (or leave it there as as an alternative way to get to Mail, if you wish).
