If you are working in Windows, you should be able to go into the start menu and right click on the program and gets an option for creating a desktop icon. If that doesn't work then launch the program and when it comes up in the bottom taskbar right click the icon there and see if there's an option to create a desktop icon. The other alternative is to pin it to the taskbar which means that the icon will stay in that bottom row. I hope that helps :-)
