How are you creating the shortcut? Ar you right-clicking on the desktop and selecting new->shortcut, or are you selecting an executable file and right-clicking and creating a shortcut?
The first way makes a shortcut on your desktop. The second way creates a shortcut in the current folder. If you created a shortcut within a folder, simply drag it to your desktop.
Thanks for responding. Some how my Icons were in my folder had to move all of them to desktop. I have no idea how that happened, but I figured it out on my own.bratt_71
