Did not see the other suggestions before jumping back in.  Had taken a lunch break.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  Hope one or the other of our suggestions helps.

I'm definitely losing it...lol!

Here's a screen shot of the Mach 3 directory open with the right clicked properties dialog box. Do you see a shortcut tab?

Well, you may be losing it, but you right, you won't see them there.   :) You can just paste or type this in the icon location field and hit enter. It will open to give you a couple of options.

%SystemDrive%\Mach3\Mach3.exe

I will do what you said to but isn't that what Bob was telling me to do?

First thing I would do is just copy the one shortcut and edit the properties as below. You will have to have a shortcut first, then you can right click on the shortcut icon to view and edit its properties.

But the whole point of this was for RC (Overloaded) not having any shortcuts at all. I have my shortcuts but I was just trying (in my "oh so feeble way!) to help him figure it out.

Unfortunately he hasn't posted back so I'm not sure if he figured this out or not.

I had 4 Mach Icons/Shortcut on my desktop. All but the LOADER have been deleted from the desktop.

One last thought.  Do you know what was the last day that you had all your icons?  If so, you can do a System Restore (assuming you are using Windows) and all your icons will mysteriously reappear.  It is a little scary the first time you do it (sort of like kinky sex) but its only scary the first time (well, maybe the second and third also  ::) ).

Let me know if you want to go that way. (He said with a wink ;) )

FINALLY back.
Bob, I cant get what you suggest to work for me.
Brett, what is the Properties tab OF in your first pic ? I never seen that before. Where do you click first ?
Dave....I' with you...losing it. Did you come to understand ?

I'll tinker a little more.

Thanks,
RC

RC, right click on the loader Icon that is still on your DT. That is what the first pic is of.
