If you wish to add a new icon to your desktop for an application, the easiest way I have found yet is as follows :
Click on 'Start'
Click on 'All programs'
Browse to the program you want to create an icon for, Let's take MS Word as an example.
Slide down the list of programs to the yellow box 'MS Office'
Click on 'MS Office'
Slide down to 'Word', when it is highlighted ( ie, goes blue )
RIGHT click on it - a pop-up menu appears
Click on 'Send to'
Click on 'Desktop (create shortcut).
