This is so I can relay this to my Brother, he has windows 7, while I have windows 8, there a lot different than each other. Our computer skill are about average. Heres the question. He wants to put an icon on the desktop for windows updates, is this possible ? Thanks, Chuck

Start menu/Control Panel.

When Control Panel opens RIGHT CLICK on Windows Update.

Click CREATE SHORTCUT.

This will place an icon for Windows Update on the desktop.

After it's put on the desktop he can move it to where ever he wants it.

For future reference, anything in Control Panel can be sent to the desktop by creating a shortcut.

For some things the right click command will be Send to/Desktop.
