2. Open Windows Explorer and find your file you want to  make a "Desk Top" short cut.

3. Select it by clicking on it. Like example to right. Blue means it's selected.

4. Go to "Edit" menu and select copy or speed key "Ctrl+C". The file is now on the "Clipboard". 


5. Find "DeskTop" Put cursor in an area of screen that does not have an icon underneath the cursor. You don't have a menu, so you'll have to use speed key "Ctrl+V to paste it on the "Desktop" like example on right. You're done. Details: Speed Keys & Clipboard

Folder Shortcut: You can make folder shortcuts to files located in another folder. Why? Because the original file shouldn't be moved or is shared, but you'd like all the files you use in easy reach. By consolidating the files you use in one folder by inserting shortcuts to them means you'll only have to Create a Folder, insert shortcuts and by opening that folder, you'll have access to those files necessary to your project or work regardless of where they are, including the internet or network. Then make Desktop Shortcut to that folder and you're in business.
Create Work Folder, Select Folder, Right mouse click, select shortcut and locate file. Create "Desktop" Shortcut to folder. It's that simple. Nice package for project or work files.
