    The answer to this depends on what GUI your using, whether your using ubuntu's default Unity, Gnome, LXDE or XFCE.

    I'm going to assume your in Unity. With unity you actually have options to do this, one is a traditional shortcut and the other, is to add it to the scrolling side bar.


    To add it to the side bar, simply do the following:

    go to Dash home, search for your application you want a shortcut to, and left click & hold to drag it over to your scrolling side bar.

    for the traditional approach, for whatever reason seems to be a bit more difficult then it should be, here is a link with many different ways to do it. I personally recommend if your using unity to stick with the side scroll launch panel.

    go here for alternative ways to make a desktop icon:

    I am having the same problem with my desk top. Everything I D/L goes straight to my "task Bar". I can't find any configuration that allows me to add anything to my desktop. Please help.
    My system is Linux 32 bit Ubuntu Mint running on a new mother board with 8gigs dual access ram 32 bit AMD CPU. This is my second post in two different 'noobie' areas with no help yet. The D/L I installed is: /linuxmint-201403-cinnamon-dvd-32bit.iso Please help. I don't want to be forced back to Microsoft.
