Is your IE7 desktop icon missing in Vista?

November 19th 2006 in Uncategorized

This is what you are missing. Create a reg file with the following text – merge with the registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


You will need to refresh the desktop to see the shortcut (right click on desktop, select refresh).
