Well it is much the samem
Right click on the icon
drop down asks make short cut?
Depening where it is now
you may get another icone under the exiting one
or you may get a message saying cant do it here I'll put on the desktop [which is where you want it
If it is the former and you get two
Minise the winder you are in to expose desk top, click and drag.

Click on start button, if E-mail Outlook Express is on your start menu, left click on it and whilst holding the button down, drag it onto your desktop....TT
