I'm trying to put some shortcuts to programs and internet links on a old pc running xp home. I use right click send to desktop and create new shortcut but the icons don't appear on the screen. Its a mystery to me, any know what could be the problem?

Right click on the Desktop, select Arrange Icons By, then select Show Desktop Icons.

Thanks VoG™, I don't have access to the pc at the moment but I'm sure thats the solution. Thanks.
