    somehow on my machine I have lost the right click ability to end to desktop (create shortcut) .
    I can still choose the other objects like floppy or either of my hard drives.
    How can I get the send to desktop option back . this pc has several user profiles and we usually share programs although all desktops are separate,so as you can see we need the ability to create desktop shortcuts.
    My Os is win 98 ifthat has any relavance
    thanks in advance

    Well, one way is to get into the Windows Explorer and add it. Go to start, programs,
    windows explorer, and enter. When there, on the left menu click on the plus next to the
    c: drive, and then click on the plus next to windows, and navigate down to 'send to' and
    hilight it. It will show you a list on the right of what's in your 'send to' folder. You can go
    to 'file' at the top left and add a new folder or shortcut to the desktop...
