IE Internet Explorere Icon back on the Desktop

By cjordan ·
Can anyone please tell me how I go about getting the IE Internet Explorer icon put back on the Desktop. I have tried the obvious ways susch as going to the IE Folder in Program Files and copying the Icon to the Users Desktop folder. However this does not work. I want to be able to create this icon on the desktop so that I can right click and go to internet properties from here. The OS is WIN XP with IE6. Any help would be reatly appreciated.

Good day,
You can try this right click on the desktop|go to properties(this should take you to display properties|select the desktop tab/button at top beside Themes|Select the customize desktop button(this should bring you to desktop items) ensure that a tick is in the box internet explorer. I hope this helps.

Open Display properties (rightclick Desktop properties)
go to Desktop tab
There you see the desktop icons you can add/remove.

Disable Desktop Cleanup will be good.
