Desktop icons
I have Vista Home Premium. When I create a shortcut to the desktop, 2
identical icons appear instead of one (they both have the shortcut arrow on
them). Only recycle bin, control panel, network, computer, and filefolder
remain single icons.

Re: Desktop icons
How are you creating these shortcuts and what is the target for the
shortcut?

Re: Desktop icons
Sorrry it took so long to get back...I've been right-clicking...send
to...desktop (create shortcut). I get the message that "Windows could not
create the shortcut. Check to see if disc is full."

I just tried to drag and drop icons from the task bar to the now-near-empty
desktop. The first 3 icons dropped on no problem...when I droped the 4th,
it, and the 3 I had just sucessfully dropped...doubled. There are now 2
icons on the desktop for each application (except the computer icon, recycle
bin, folders and network icons).
