  3. Desktop Shortcut Icons

    Hi Mik-Dav,

    The desktop shortcut created for a specific website should bear the website's actual logo. With what you've experienced, there could be something wrong with how the shortcut was created.

    If you've created the shortcut by selecting Create shortcut, then we suggest that you try the other way, that is by dragging the website icon that appears in the address bar to your desktop. Follow these steps:

    • Using Internet Explorer, access a website.
    • Once the website opens, you will see its icon in the address bar.
    • Click and drag the icon on your desktop.

    The website shortcut bearing its actual logo should now be saved on your desktop.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Shortcut for Window Defender

    After you receive the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (you should receive it this month) a WD icon should be inserted into the taskbar notifications area and you can easily access WD from there…you should
    be able to set it to permanently appear on the taskbar. I think I’d just wait on that to occur instead of creating an app or shortcut.


    • Windows Defender now has an icon that appears in the notification area and produces more notifications by default. This makes it more clear to average Windows users that Windows 10 has a built-in antivirus protecting them. Windows
      Defender can also perform a boot-time offline scan to find and remove more nasty malware.
    But if you prefer not to wait on the Anniversary Update you can always try following the suggestions here:
