Adding Icons and Shortcuts to Your Desktop

I covered this topic somewhat in the last chapter, but it is time to look at this in detail. While working with Konqueror, you might recall that you had a directory called Desktop and that this directory actually was your desktop. If you wanted to get a file onto your desktop, you could just drag and drop (copy or link) a file there. A good reason for doing this is that it puts things you use on a regular basis (a business spreadsheet perhaps or a contact list) right where you can quickly get to them.

The single most useful icon you will want to add to your desktop is a link to a program on your system, something you might have called a shortcut under your old OS. Maybe you need to have your word processor or your CD player handy. Whatever it is, you would like it there in front of you.
