hi Aaron1312042, and welcome to sevenforums,
there are several method of getting a shortcut on the desktop:
- right-click on desktop >> new >> shortcut >> browse to the program's exe file
- open up windows explorer >> navigate to exe file >> drag it to desktop, and a shortcut is created
- goto startmenu >> find program >> right-click >> copy >> goto desktop >> paste
there are other methods, but those should be enough for you.
*edit* oops - Bongo got there first - again!
...and i should have known that Brink had already written an excellent tutorial for it!
