    Yeah! This is an easy one. If you are using Windows 2000 go to Start | Programs and go to the Outlook icon. RIGHT click and hold and drag to the desk top. When you let go you will get the option to move, copy or create shortcut. Ask to create short cut. As the French say, "Wa La!"

    I don't have Outlook in the Start menu either !
    All I have is a shortcut on the W'2000 taskbar.

    Right_mouse-click the shortcut you can see, select Copy.
    Right_mouse-click anywhere on your desktop, select Paste Shortcut.

    Been there & done that, all this does is put another shortcut on the desktop.
    I need to get to the properties of Outlook so I can adjust/add/delete .pst & .pab's.
    Maybe there is another way to do that ?

    You need to edit the Registry to get the Outlook icon (not a shortcut) back. See XCLN: How to Restore the Outlook Icon to the Desktop. The usual warnings about editing the Registry apply.

    I use the Mail control panel (Start>Settings>Control Panel>Mail).
