Thanks for answering my question about how to put "Favorites Icon" on my desktop.
There is no "send to" when I write click on the icon. Am I supposed to click on it some place else? You may answer me dirictly if you have time.
Probably your registry is corrupted. The other way is to right click and hold on the icon (of whatever program you want to bring it to the desktop, any where - be it in the start menu or in a file folder) and drag it to the desktop. A menu will appear and click on 'Create shortcuts here'.
