    how would I take all my game icons on the desktop and put them under one icon on the desktop so that I can see the background picture of my grandchildren? I am using win. 7 64 bit.

    RT. click the desktop. Panel comes up, put cursor on NEW, second panel comes up, click FOLDER. a new folder comes up on your desktop. RT. click it and RENAME to what you want to call it.

    Drag your new folder to a chosen location, then DRAG (LT. mouse click held down) every one of the icons you are talking about and DROP them in it. All you do then when you want any of the items, is to LT. click the new folder, all the icons will then be displayed, LT. click the one you want and it will open. Off you go.

    You can create as many new folders as you like in this way to store collective desktop icons.
