Creating a desktop shortcut is very easy and can come in very handy if you need to access a program often. If you need to create a desktop shortcut to a favorite program or file here's how you do it. This will work in Windows 95/98/98SE/ME/NT/2000 and Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional

Right click on your desktop where there are no icons and select "New" "Shortcut". You will see the dialog window appear that will look something like image below. Click the browse button to find the program or file you wish to create a shortcut to.

After you click the "Browse" button, navigate your hard drive(s) to locate the file or program that you want to make a shortcut to. In this example we're making a shortcut to one of the programs we use a lot called "Webmaster Tools"

Browse to the program then click it to highlight it. Now click OK.

Give the shortcut a name that you'll recognize or accept the name that Windows gives it. Click Finish and you'll see the program or file icon on your desktop as a shortcut. That's it. It takes less than 2 minutes to do and can come in very handy sometimes!

Here's our Desktop Shortcut. You can tell it's a shortcut because of the little arrow at the bottom left of the icon. Yeah! We're done!
