The Quickest way to create some shortcuts on Desktop

Recommended Posts

Suppose you want to create a desktop shortcut, for the program you installed and is available only in the Programs Tab.

 

Just click on start > Programs> x (where 'x' is the name of the program you installed)

 

Press CTRL key(keep it pressed while dragging) and DRAG the desired program to the Desktop. that's it

 

You successfully created a shortcut for the desired program.

 

Want some shortcut for the web pages ?

 

Once you opened the web page locate the Icon just before the http:// click and drag it to the Desktop.

(make sure you can see a portion of desktop so that the web page does not cover the whole screen area)

You successfully created a shortcut for the desired web page. Next time you want to access this web page just double click this shortcut. (make sure you are connected to the net)

 

Open Control Panel and drag the icon on the left to the Desktop, thus you can create a Desktop shortcut for Control Panel as well.

 

 

Hope it's useful. :adios:

This method doesn't actually create a shortcut, Sudo.  What it does is copy an existing shortcut, which is nonetheless useful,  If you try it with a file or folder, for example, you get a copy of the item instead of the shortcut to the original.

 

I use a slightly different method, which is to drag an item (file, folder, shortcut, etc.) while pressing the right mouse button.  When the button is released, click Create Shortcut Here if it's listed; if not, click Copy Here.

 

EDIT: Forgot to mention that probably the quickest way to get a shortcut on to the Desktop is to right-click the item, point to Send To, and click Desktop (create shortcut).

We talk here of creating shortcuts but let's not get confused.

 

Alt-Drag to new location: Create shortcut

Ctrl-Drag to new location: Copy file or folder

 

NOTE: Both of these actions work with multiple selections.
