Ok, I have an image that I want to use as an icon on my desktop, you know like your "My Computer" icon or a folder icon but I'm not sure how. If anybody can do it let me know and I'll send you the image that I want made into an icon. Or if you want to tell me how to do it that would work too.

right click the image, then say "set as desktop item"
and then it brings up what you want to change.

...i think...

I'm not trying to create a short cut. I'm trying to take an image and make it into and icon that I can use as the short cut icon. I tried going into the shortcut properties on the icon that I already have and just change it that way but it didn't work. Thanks for trying though marvin.
