You will need to ask steve6375 directly in order to get him to responde to this. To do this, go to your original post, click on steve6375, when his profile comes up, there is a box that reads "ask me", click that and you can ask hime directly.

I will tell you that some copyrighted icons will not let the shortcut use the icon.

Create Desktop Shutdown/Lock/Restart/Hibernate Shortcut Icons In Vista


1. Right click an empty area of your Desktop
2. Select New>> Shortcut
3. In the text box titled: "Type the location of the item:" Enter the Command for the particular shortcut you would like to create. I've listed all of the commands below that activate their respective shortcut:
Hibernate rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll,SetSuspendState
Lock Rundll32.exe User32.dll,LockWorkStation
Restart Shutdown.exe -r -t 00
Shutdown Shutdown.exe -s -t 00
Sleep rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep
4. Once you've entered the command, click "Next"
5. Vista will now ask you what you would like to name your shortcut. I've always just given it the name of its function (EG: Shutdown or Shutdown System).
6. Once you have named you shortcut, click "Finish". Your new shortcut will now reside on your Desktop. Simply double click the icon to activate the command.


Note: If you do not like the look of the "default" icon that Vista has given it, you can change the icon to a different one. Here's how:

1. Right click the shortcut icon
2. Select Properties
3. The shortcut properties window will now be displayed. Click the "Change Icon" button.
4. The "Change Icon" window will now appear. Here, you can select from the many available system icons. Click the icon that you would like to use as your shortcut icon and then click OK.

Your Desktop shortcut icon will now revert to the selected system icon.

That's it! Have fun!

Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar


To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch
toolbar, follow these steps....

1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a
file with the following lines:
[Shell]
Command=2

2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create

5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut

How do I down load I-con for Netflix on my laptop


I'm confused as to what's wrong.
You went to Netflix.com and downloaded / installed but no icon showed up? Or your watching directly from Netflix? Do you have a shortcut with no icon on your desktop? Or you have no shortcut at all?
What OS are you using?

Below is for Windows XP / 7
To fix you have short cut with no icon you can follow steps below or download it again and re-install
Open Internet Explorer or any web browser and go to http://findicons.com/search/netflix. Click the image you wish to use and download the ico version.
Right click the shortcut to Netflix on your desktop and click change icon. Browse to the ico file you saved.

There are other icon sites out there. This is the first one I found that SEEMED safe to use, but I do not own the site.

To fix your watching directly from Netflix with no shortcut or icon.

Right click on your desktop and click create shortcut
copy and past this https://www.netflix.com/Login?locale=en-US
name it Netflix.

If I got your needs all wrong please explain more.

Desktop URL shortcuts no longer have website icons. Ugly E symbol


Right click on the shortcut and copy the url.

Create a new shortcut and paste the url into the location, give it a name then save the new shortcut.

The new shortcut should appear on your desktop with the icon of the website. You can then delete the old shortcut.

Unfortunately, this seems to be the only way to get the proper icon. You can click on the change icon button when you're viewing the propertis of the shortcut but the icon of the website will not be displayed.

If this information is helpful to you, please take a few minutes to rate this reply.

Click on Windows button. In the "Start Search" column just about the button type in "Office" and you'll be given a list of all programs that have the word "Office" in the name. Right click on the program and select "Open file Location".

If you drag the icon from the address bar in IE to the desktop, it should change the icon when it is copied to the desktop.

otherwise -

go to the website and right-click on the icon you want to use and save the icon to disk. Download an icon editing tool and load the icon and save it as a .ico file. Then right-click - properties on the shortcut and then change icon and browse to the icon you just saved.
