How to Make a New Email Shortcut

Email seems to be one of those things that modern offices generate a lot of. Thus when I found an article on how to make a shortcut for new email I figured I’d share.

Here are the results from my shortcut:














If you’d like to further customize your shortcut howtogeek.com has a great tutorial here

In it they explain how make your shortcut include: To, Subject, CC, BCC, and even a preset message.

The idea I really liked from the tutorial:
