Adding Icons To Your Desktop

The first time you start Vista you normally don’t have any Desktop icons, not even My Computer. I guess Microsoft is going with the uncluttered look now. Well its easy to get the default one back. Here’s how.

Right click an empty spot on your desktop and choose Personalize. In the Left hand section Click > Change desktop icons.

 Now just place checkmarks in the Icons you want then click Ok. you can also change the icon image by choosing > Change Icon.

To get an Internet Explorer icon, you have to do a little more work. 

Click Start > and type IE in the search box. Right click IE 7 in the files area and drag it to your desktop > and choose Create a Shortcut here.
