Windows 7: Create shortcut

Create shortcut

How do I create a shortcut to my desktop, so that the Windows explorer will open up the selected library in the 'my documents' section?

Of course there is no "create shortcut" button when I right click on the library.

For libraries you can use "Send to -> Desktop" in the right click menu.

Open the Library in question, right click, drag to desktop, release right mouse button, choose 'Create shortcut here' from the resulting context menu.

Even better. Glad you're around to humiliate me. Keeps me humble.

Thanks for quick reply. Shifting back to PC from Mac -- the file organizing works much better in PC version, but a few things to get used to.
