    To make a Desktop Icon
    - find the program executable (.exe file) in File Explorer.
    - Right Click on executable and select COPY
    - Place the mouse cursor over the Desktop and Right Click and select Paste Shortcut.
    - You have created a Program Icon shortcut on the Desktop.

    I want to thank you and all the others for their kind help in this matter. You have given me the answer. This is what we need to tell all 7 users. Under 7 you merely RC copy and move to your desktop and LC paste. Not so with 10. Here you have to RC copy and on the desktop LC and paste shortcut. It works, thanks to all!

    You need to install VMWare tools, it fixes the issue.
