If you are like me you probably have a bunch of different software installed. It can be a little overwhelming if you have to scroll through all of them. Luckily there is the famous Windows 7 search. Sometimes that isn’t fast enough like going to the desktop and clicking an icon. Here is a quick and easy way to send start menu items to the desktop as a shortcut.
Go to the application you want on the desktop. For me I will be using Word 2010. Locate the application then right click on it and go to Send To menu. From the Send To menu select Desktop (create shortcut)
That’s it, now your application is on the desktop.
