  • Hi,

    The Internet Explorer icon does not appear on your desktop. When you try to use the Desktop Items dialog box in Windows XP or the Desktop Icon Settings dialog box in Windows Vista to add the Internet Explorer icon, there is no Internet Explorer check box.


    To add an Internet Explorer icon yourself, you can use either of the following methods. If you only want to create an Internet Explorer icon on your desktop that opens your home page, use Method 1 to create a shortcut. Use Method 2 if you want to add a special Internet Explorer icon on your desktop that performs one of the following tasks:

    Opens the Internet Properties dialog box

    Starts Internet Explorer without add-ons (such as toolbars)

    For more information, please refer to the link:
