Shortcut does not appear on my desktop Tags: Desktops Email Explorer Windows XP Last response: July 18, 2010 12:24 AM in Windows XP Share mrbill76 July 17, 2010 7:23:40 PM Hello, i have a file I received by email that I want to create a shortcut for. I found the file with "explorer" and told it to create a shortcut. Nothing.

If that is not working as above, I have no doubt that you are correct. aford10 July 18, 2010 12:24:41 AM What directory did you find it in, in explorer? You should be able to just cut and paste that onto your desktop. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
