Windows 7: How do I Add things to the Desktop List?

11 Jan 2009   #11

 

Put the desktop folder on your taskbar and then use it for a couple of minutes - then you'll understand....

They act just like they do from the start menu - which a shortcut *won't*.

If he adds shortcuts to *that* folder* they appear on the desktop also.

He wants the shortcuts there accessible via the taskbar folder, but *not* showing on the desktop.

Weren't you reading?

The other folders won't have all those folders that the desktop folder had - computer, etc....
LOL, isn't always though.

I have not tried the textless icons on the desktop yet, but I would image that they should.
