Adding the Internet Explorer Icon to the desktop in Vista

By default, the icon for the Internet Explorer 7 does not show up on the Vista desktop To add it back in again, a registry edit is needed. Just copy the below code and paste in notepad and save it as anyname.reg Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel] "{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000 Then log off and back on again.
