I've just recently downloaded a few free clean up tools for my PC. Our PC has 2 users,I used my section to download the software so I have the shortcuts on my desktop how do I get the same shortcuts on the other user account ? Thanks.

Open other user account find the program that you want to make a short cut for in Start Programs

Open folder and right click on the program icon and click Create Shortcut a second short cut icon

will be appear in the folder just drag and drop on to the desktop

Try right clicking on the Desktop icon>Copy and then Pasting it into the other account's Desktop.

Or right-click on the start button and choose "Explore All Users". Click "All Users, Desktop" in the folders pane then drag the icons into the right pane. They will then appear on all desktops.

Thanks Eric10....the 'all users' bit didn't work but then I tried 'explore and dug my way through to the other user where there was a shortcut and GOT IT ! Thanks again all of you folks.
