    I had a desktop shortcut, in Internet Explorer, to Yahoo Mail, created by right clicking the background within Yahoo Mail and selecting "Create Shortcut" from the options presented.

    Earlier today I found that it no longer worked, getting instead the message "Windows cannot open this file:
    To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. etc."

    I deleted the shortcut and created another, but the system still coughs up the same message.

    Why has this happened, and how can I create another shortcut which works properly?
