    Thanks Leonard, but that doesn't work on my system -- dragging into My
    Computer yeilds the crossed-circle icon and attempts to copy/paste don't work
    either -- those options are greyed out.

    Re: Add shortcut to My Computer

    You didn't ask about "dragging into My Computer". You asked how to make
    "a shortcut to My Computer".

    A shortcut to My Computer opens My Computer when double-clicked. The
    method I gave you does exactly that.

    If you are asking about something else, try re-phrasing your question.

    Hi Leonard,

    I see how my query was prone to misinterpretation -- sorry about that
    ("Errare humanum est", indeed!). What I mean to ask about is how to place a
    shortcut to another folder into the "My Computer" folder.

    My Computer is a system folder. You can't add anything to it, other than
    a shortcut to Control Panel.

    "In solving a problem of this sort, the grand thing is to be able to reason
    backwards. That is a very useful accomplishment, and a
    very easy one, but people do not practise it much. In the every-day affairs
    of life it is more useful to reason forwards, and so
    the other comes to be neglected. There are fifty who can reason
    synthetically for one who can reason analytically." - Sherlock
