Putting Favorites Starshaped Icon on desktop.

How can I put the favorites icon on the desktop as a shortcut. I used to have it but can`t remember how I did it. Have tried drag&drop but that doesn`t work. Thanks. OS is xp home.

Go to My Computer then C then Documents and Settings, User and right click on the Favourites icon and Send To desktop.

Or even right-click on the Desktop then click on New, Shortcut and Browse. Then work to Favourites Folder and click ok.
