Try again.

If it does not work try to send a screen shot of what options you have.

In my IE browser the shortcut is there by right clicking or by going to File; Send; Shortcut to desktop.

In Firefox you need to add the deskCut addon which will let you right click and "Create deskCut" which is a shortcut on the desktop.

For me it is easier to right click than to drag and drop.
