Then just drag from documents to desktop

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Better still when you right-click, mouse over Send to and click on Desktop (create shortcut).

For the record, you can create shortcuts to any of your apps exactly as you did in any previous version of Windows. You can also pin them to your Start menu or your Taskbar by right-clicking.

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.

Yet another.
Right click outlook in the Start - Programs. Drag it to the desktop. It will say something like "Move to desktop" Just release the mouse button and then you will see you can copy or move, as you wish.
