Want WordPad icon on desktop

I want to put the WordPad icon on my desktop for easy access. I can 't even find the program. Any ideas? I thought it'd be as simple as find it, click on "send to...desktop" and done!

Thanks!

Just put it in your taskbar, you put it on the desktop, and later on delete it, it might mess up the icon.

Click on start orb and type wordpad in the search box, it will appear on list, then do your right click send to desktop.
