    Hi jrebennack

    Open "My Computer" from your desktop icon.....
    Right click on "Control Panel"....
    Right click on "Create Shortcut"....
    You will get a window telling you that you can't create a shortcut to "Control Panel" within the current folder, and it will give you the option to place the shortcut on your desktop........click on "Yes" and there you go!!!

    Have a Great day!!!
    Ken

    I see that you've already solved the problem, thanks to Ken, but for the future reference of others who might be searching the Lounge..... I've always made my Control Panel shortcut, either on the Desktop or QuickLaunch by using Windows Explorer. When you open Explorer, there is a Control Panel entry in the left pane. If you just right-drag it to the Desktop, you can create a shortcut. This has worked in several versions of Windows, including XP.

    Aw Al......that's too simple <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
    But then, it took you 78 words, to my 58, to explain. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Have a Great day!!!
