    Tutorial to add I.E. icon to desktop did not work

    I ran the utility, in the Tutorials, to add I.E. 11 to desktop and it did not work. I ran the utility and per instructions refreshed the desktop but no Icon. I then rebooted and still no icon. I ran the utility again and still did not add icon.

    I.E. 11 is activated and I can access it via Edge.

    Hello fireberd, :)

    If you mean the tutorial below, did you do both step 2 and step 3?

    Type or copy paste this to File Explorer addressbar:
    %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories
    Copy the Internet Explorer shortcut icon and simply paste it to desktop, alternatively you can send the shortcut to desktop by right clicking the shortcut, selecting Send to, and finally selecting Desktop:
