Hey,
I am no computer genius but I think if you want to access the "icons" that support the programs behind them then, go down to the lowewr left hand corner of the screen and hit "START". A window will pop up. at the bottom left corner is a thing that says "all Programs" if you click on that there are all the programs that were loaded on. Good luck Fred

it should have created a new folder on your desktop called

"Unused Desktop Shortcuts"

see if what you are looking for is there

I prefer to do that kind of thing manually. Then I know exactly where they have gone to. I have several folders on my desktops for various types of programs. That way you can organize them by function. You can also put frequently used documents or shortcuts to them on the desktop or in these folders.

In my opinion, Microsoft is trying to make computers too "user friendly". Too many things are hidden from the users. If they would just provide decent instructions so the users could learn to do things themselves things would be a lot better.
