    From my opinion you have to open Internet Explorer directly without utilizing shortcut for that you have to Press Start and then in the search field you have to type Internet Explorer. After that Double Press the program that shows at the top of the list with the name Internet Explorer. This will open the window of Internet Explorer. You be able to as well right Press the program in addition to choose the alternative Send to Desktop (create shortcut) to generate a shortcut on desktop. Hope this helps.

    The ways you have specified simply create a shortcut not the original / real Internet Explorer icon. Earlier in Windows XP, We are able to go to show properties window, press on desktop tab as well as press on customize desktop plus there we had the choice to create a check mark against Internet Explorer with we are able to bring back the icon however after installing Internet Explorer 8, it has disappeared from the customize desktop tab as well. How do we get the definite icon as well as not the shortcut back?

    Windows 7 no longer supports the capability to change the registry to obtain the special Internet Explorer image to come into view on your desktop. This alter was made to make sure Internet Explorer could be removed without difficulty for compliance cause. The simply method to add the Internet Explorer image to the desktop in Windows 7 is to generate a shortcut.
