    I finally found the answer to the problem. I had unchecked Align to grid in the desktop view options. When I checked it the send to desktop (create shortcut) option worked.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    So they were being created but placed off screen or stacking on one icon position? Or don't you know? Because that setting alone doesn't prevent send shortcut to desktop.

    F.U.N. downtown, maybe it doesn't but it works for me. (Previously they were going to the All Users desktop folder).

    Roderunner, thanks but I don't need to do this now, as what I did (see post #16) worked.

    I see, well maybe just changing that setting made Windows re-established the connection with the proper folder.

    What works for my Windows 7 Ultimate, where "send to desktop" as shortcut is missing from my right-click menu is (1) right-click on the file or folder you want to send to desktop (as a shortcut), (2) select COPY (instead of "send to"), (3) go to blank space on your Desktop and right-click, (4) select "paste as shortcut"
