Not knowing those apps, I can't say for certain, but usually if you go to the program's directory and select "Send To Desktop", it will place a shortcut on the desktop for you.

Hello compute1,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

You can also add a shortcut by clicking on the icon to the far left of the address and dragging it to the desktop.

Edit:You can also drag and drop that same icon on the IE taskbar button (if it's pinned) to pin it to the jumplist.

Hello Compute1, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, you can create internet shortcuts using any of the methods here as well.
