Hopefully I am in the right forum. I use Windows Live messenger. How can I have a desktop icon for this program. Currently I use my camera porgram to access Windows live but i would prefer a quicker way.

Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Interesting. Do this:
  • Click Start > Find > Find Files and Folders
  • Search for msnmsgr.exe
  • When found, right click it and click Send to Desktop (Create Shortcut)

Is the icon in your Start menu under All Programs?
If it is, you can either right click on the name and use Send to desktop OR drag and drop it to your desktop.
