In Win XP, I could just drag the icons between the taskbar and the desktop. That doesn't seem to work in Win 10. Is there some trick that I need to learn?

 

Thanks

Right click on the icon.....and select "unpin from taskbar"   This removes it from the taskbar....but it does not move it to the desktop

 

To put a shortcut on the desktop...click on the start button...all apps...left click on the program/app/whatever it is you want on the desktop....and simply drag it outside the start menu area to the desktop.
