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.
