Make the Computer Icon Appear on Desktop in Windows 7
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng
Welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to make the "Computer" icon appear on the desktop on a Windows 7 computer.
There are currently two "Computer" icons on the desktop, but there is a difference between them. The first one is the actual Computer link, which you can right-click to manage it or go to it's properties.
The second one is just a shortcut, which means that it only opens "Computer". The properties cannot be opened with this shortcut, it will only open the properties of the shortcut. For this tutorial, both of the "Computer" icons will be deleted to show how to add them to the desktop.
Press the Start Menu button in the lower-left corner of the screen and right-click on "Computer.
Now, the actual "Computer" link has been created on the desktop.
To add only the shortcut, right-click on "Computer" and click "Create shortcut".
Alternatively, press Alt on the keyboard and click and drag the computer icon, then let go of both buttons.
The link has been created.
This concludes the tutorial on how to make "Computer" appear on the desktop on a Windows 7 computer. Thank you for watching VisiHow. If you have any other comments or questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
