Desktop icons are placed on a computer's main start-up screen, giving easy access to programs and software titles. If you subscribe to Comcast and have the Comcast connection software installed on your system, you may want to create a desktop icon for the program. This prevents you from navigating through the Start menu every time you want to access the content.
Click the "Start" button on your desktop, select "All Programs" and hover the mouse over the Comcast Internet program.
Right-click the listing and select "Create Shortcut." A new icon appears on the desktop. This is the Comcast program shortcut.
Click the icon once in the text area to highlight the text. Type in a new name for the program (if you choose) and then click outside the text box to accept the changes.
Double-click the new desktop icon to launch the Comcast program.
