I would like to be able to make one by just right clicking on a startmenu item and "Send to Desktop as a shortcut".. or similiar. ( as pre windows 7) I know how to "pin" but that's different.
As it is,the right button does nothing. If I try to drag the program icon across.. it loads the program.
I managed to do it recently by modifying something like Folder Behaviour but after having to resort to an earliier backup I lost both the function and the method of achieving it.
