    Wow, you really hit it out of the park with another great tip, ones I hadn’t read before. These are great ways to create a shortcut, and I’m going to try them all. The only way I knew how to make a shortcut was to right click on the program and click Send To Desktop. I’m really happy you’re making life easier for a whole lot of us!
