As follows: Enable the Quick Launch toolbar if you do not have icons just
to the right of the Start button on the Taskbar.

If you have icons there, then go to Start>All Programs>Accessories and right
click on the Calculator. On the context menu that appears choose Send
to/Desktop as Shortcut. After it appears on the desktop simply drag it to
the Quick Launch toolbar. You can position it as desired. (You do not have
to unlock the Taskbar to do any of this.)

To enable the Quick Launch toolbar, right click on the Taskbar and unlock
the Taskbar if it is locked. Right click again, choose Toolbars/Quick
Launch.

Lock the Taskbar again.

Just drag the calculator icon down to the Quck Launch Toolbar. If you don't
have the Quick Launch Toolbar yet just right click the toolbar and put a
check in for Quick Launch.

Like most applications, the calculator item in the Start menu is a
Windows shortcut.

Use the right mouse button to drag the shortcut from the
Start/Accesories menu to the QuickLaunch area of the taskbar.
You may be prompted to select "Copy" or "Move". Select "Copy".

You may also consider the option of pinning the calculator shortcut to
the start menu. "Pin to Start Menu" is one of the options on the contect
menu when you right click on a shortcut within "All Programs".

As the items on the taskbar can be rearrainged by the user, the
QuickLaunch area might be adjacent to the Start button (on the left) or
the Notification area (on the right).
