How do I overcome this problem in order that I can short cut from desktop shortcut to internet explorer?

So basically you are trying to put an IE shortcut onto your desktop because you old one does not work??

First you have to go to C Drive>Program Files>Internet Explorer> RIght Click iexplorer and send it to desktop. That will leave a shortcut of IE on your desktop... if that is what you are trying to do that is.

No thats not what I am trying to do.
Say I go into a site and want to return to it later so I go into file and send a shortcut to desktop. However when I want to return to that site using the desktop shortcut, I get this message.

Right Click on the desktop shortcut and choose "Open With..." and select the choose program... option, then scroll through the programs untill you see Internet Explorer and choose that one and make sure to put a check in the box that says "Always use selected program to open this kind of file". Or why don't you just save the website you want to revisit in your internet explorer Favorites (goto website, then click Favorites and choose Add to Favorites).
