If you just want to create a folder on your desktop and you're going to put the icons there follow this:

Right click any place on your computer and click on New>Folder then after that you can rename the folder if you like, when folder is already on your desktop just drag those icon to the folder and that's it

Hope that helps................

How to create a system folder in My Computer System folder like My Document...


How to create a system folder in My Computer System folder like My Document which appears in My computer are special folders which appear can not be deleted. Now if you want to create something like that, a folder which cannot be deleted!!!! . Here is how you do it to create a folder which cannot be deleted!!. It should work both in XP and VISTA.However a word of caution, If you don’t know about registry, either back up or don’t try this. I am not sure how to create a direct script for this so be cautious.
Step 1: Create a Unique Key
Open registry with “regedit” command on run window.
Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\. Then right click and create a new key with value as {FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}
Now set the default value of this key to the folder name you want to use. Now your path will look like ( I will call this as parent key throughout the discussion) HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}

 
Step 2: Add Custom Icon to the folder
Now create a sub key under parent key.
Name it as “DefaultIcon”.
Set the default value of this to the path of the icon image you want to use.
If you dont specify your icon, system will take default icon.
Step 3: Adding attributes
Under parent key create another key with name as “InprocServer32′
Set the default value as “shell32.dll”
Again at the same level create another folder as “ThreadingModel” and set its value as “Apartment”
Same way create another key (under parent level) at the same level with structure as \Shell\My Folder\Command
Set the default value here as “explorer /root,c:\Blog Data”
This has to be same which you gave when you created the first key.
Step 4 Adding Handlers
Under parent key, create another key as \ShellEx\PropertySheetHandlers\ {FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}
Similar way another key is to added to parent key as “Shell Folder”
In this right click and create new binary value called as “Attributes” with value as 00 00 00 00.
Step 5: Settings to place in My Computer
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
Then to \CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\
Add the parent key which in this case is {FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}
 
Thats it, You are done. Try this carefully and I am sure there wont be any problem

I installed my lexmark 2600 printer and there is no icon on my desktop screen, help


Maybe you have to reboot to get it on the desktop. Does the printer work if you opened a document and tried to print to it? If not, reinstall it.

Is it in your program list? Click Start/Programs or Start/All Programs and look for the Lexmark Folder. If it is there, then you can Right Click on any item inside the folder and select Send To/Desktop (Create Shortcut) to send it to the desktop.

The problem is that,when I open the (my computer)icon or folder to find the drivers c,e,d or e, I am going to find the search page instade. so I don't know what to do. Thank you


You should tell wich operating system you use next time, however if you use Windows Xp you simply click the Folders button at the search page, and you should have your drives back. If there is no folder button, than try right-clicking the My Computer icon and chose Windows Explorer.

Hope it helped. If not please give more details about your operating system.

remove all programs that start at boot up by running msconfig and clearing all checked boxes for the programs that load at boot up. Also, remove all but the system icons from the desktop by creating a folder in "My Documents" called "Desktop". Cut and the paste all but the system icons into this folder, then right click on the folder and create a shortcut to this folder on the desktop. re-boot and see how it goes.

I deleted the recycle icon by accident i would like to get it back please?


Assuming you didn’t turn off all your desktop icons (right-click your desktop, choose View from the menu, and choose Show Desktop Icons if it doesn’t have a check next to it, which will turn them back on), it’s easy to get back, so stop your sweating and follow these simple steps.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and choose Personalize

  2. Click on the Change Desktop Icons link in the upper left hand corner
    delrb2.jpg
  3. In the Desktop Icons Settings window, check the Recycle Bin box and click OK
    delrb7.jpg
WORKAROUND in case the above does not work loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround'); If you cannot restore the Recycle Bin by using the resolutions that are listed in this article, work around this issue by creating a shortcut to the Recycle Bin: 1. Click Start, and then click My Computer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 3. Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 4. Click Yes when the warning message appears, and then click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box. 5. Click Folders on the toolbar.

Note If Folders is not visible on the toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Standard Buttons. 6. In the left pane, under Folders, locate the Recycle Bin folder, and then drag the Recycle Bin folder to the desktop. 7. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 8. Click the View tab, and then click to select the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click OK.Note This procedure does not re-create the original icon. However, this procedure restores most of the features of the Recycle Bin, including the following: • Delete a file by dragging it to the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop. • Retrieve a file that you deleted by double-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, right-clicking the file that you want to retrieve, and then clicking Restore. • Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin. When you use these step to work around the problem, you cannot right-click the Recycle Bin shortcut to access the Recycle Bin Properties. To set properties for the Recycle Bin, follow these steps: 1. Double-click the Recycle Bin shortcut on the Desktop. The Recycle Bin folder opens. 2. In the upper left corner of the Recycle Bin folder, right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and then click Properties.
