A shortcut is an icon on the desktop that provides quick access to programs, files, folders, and drives you might frequently use. When you double-click on the shortcut, it will open (launch) the item (such as a file or application) directly from the desktop.
To Create A Desktop Shortcut
- Right-click on the desired file or folder.
- Then click on Send to.
- Now click on Desktop (create shortcut).
- Windows Vista will automatically create the shortcut on the desktop.
- You can also left-click and drag the desired item to the desktop to create a shortcut.
Note: If you cannot see your desktop, minimize any open windows to make your desktop visible.
