Re: Bring the IE icon back to the desktop
[crosspost to IE General newsgroup]

The Internet Explorer icon is missing from your desktop:

Where is the Internet Explorer desktop icon in Windows Vista?:

Fact: By default, Vista computers do NOT have an IE icon on the desktop
unless Classic View is enabled.

Fact: On computers running WinXP and IE7 or IE8, the IE icon on the desktop
is removed after installing any Cumulative Security Update for IE that was
released since Sept-07.

Don't quite understans what the fuss is about, easy enough to create a
shortcut, which has the same functionality.
