Windows XP shortcuts for windows


The desktop is the best place to place all frequently used shortcuts.

Below are a few samples on how to put shortcuts on your desktop:

  • For the DOS prompt (Command Prompt), go Start menu -> "All Programs" -> "Accessories" -> highlight the "Command Prompt" icon and right-click.  Select the option "Send To" -> "Desktop (create shortcut)" or select "Create Shortcut".
  • Answer yes to the popup question and this will create a shortcut to Command Prompt on your desktop.
  • Basically, if you want any of the icons to be placed on the desktop, you highlight the icon of the application that you want, right-click and choose the "Create Shortcut" option.

Hope this helps!

Hello Darkdee.

If you do not want to clutter up your Windows desktop with many shortcuts here's what I suggest:

For this example let us assume that you want to create a new shortcut for Command Prompt.

  1. Press Start -> All Programs -> Accessories.
  2. Highlight the icon for Command Prompt.
  3. Right-click and look for the option "Pin to Start Menu".
  4. Left-click on "Pin to Start Menu"
  5. You will now see Command Prompt icon on your Start Menu like this:

You can do the above procedure for all items in the Start Menu.  This places all frequently used shortcuts in an more easily accessible place aside from your desktop.

To remove, highlight the Command Prompt icon, right-click and select "Unpin from Start Menu".
