Hi foreverga,

Creating a Shortcut to a Program or File

To create a shortcut on the desktop to a program or file, there are
two possible methods to choose from.
1. Right-click an open area on the desktop, point to New, and then click Shortcut. 
2. Click Browse. 
3. Locate the program or file to which you want to create a shortcut,
click the program or file, click Open, and then click Next.
4. Type a name for the shortcut. If a Finish button appears at the
bottom of the dialog box, click it. If a Next button appears at the
bottom of the dialog box, click it, click the icon you want to use for
the shortcut, and then click Finish.;en-us;140443

I have Windows XP. To put a copy of my "Favorites" on my desktop, I
would do the following:

Right-click an open area on the desktop, point to New, and then click Shortcut. 
Click Browse. 
Go to My Computer > Local Disk (C) > Documents and Settings > (My
name) > Favorites. Click OK.
Click Next. Click Finish.

I hope this is helpful. If you have any questions regarding my answer
please don't hesitate to ask before rating.

Best regards,
