Put it on the Desktop--Part 2 of 2
In our last tip, we talked about creating shortcuts on your desktop with a right click drag. However, you can also create a shortcut by right clicking on your desktop and choosing New--Shortcut from the context menu.
When you do this, the Create Shortcut wizard. When the wizard opens, type the name and full path of the file to which you want to create the shortcut, then click Next. If you don't know the full name and path, click Browse. When the Browse dialog box opens, locate and select the file to which you want to make a shortcut. Click Open to continue. Back in the Create Shortcut wizard, click Next and type in a name for your new shortcut. Click Next again and select an icon. Click Finish to close the dialog box and create your new shortcut--icon and all.
