    2 quick choices right click your icon, and pick desktop OR drag the icon to your desktop ...

    I could only drag it to desktop from the start list.

    usually one of the Right Click Options is "Pin to Taskbar" if you choose that option, then you can drag it from your taskbar on to your Desktop.

    Can't do that either. Can drag from the start list or Start.
