The Place on Desktop option not working
When you create an icon on the desktop, the macro nickname also becomes that file name. Windows will not accept several characters in a file name, one of them being the /. Other characters not allowed are \ : * ? < > and |. So if you remove the offending character from the nickname, you should be able to create a desktop icon.
To place an icon on the desktop, highlight the macro in the Macro Express Editor. Then click on Macros | Place on Desktop. This will put the icon you have selected for your macro onto your desktop.
