    if once the shortcut located on the screen already then you cant make another shortcut of the same application .....
    currently there's no such option in the beta version ...
    but we can pic the application to the start bar in windows 7..... so that we can expect the same in windows 8 official release .....

    Speed Up SATA Hard Drives&USB Drives In Windows Vista Window Vista has built in support for SATA and external drives, but they seem to be slow because the advanced write cache features arenít automatically activated.
    -With just few steps you can enable them and get a much faster response.
    -First you need to go to the Device Manager which you can go directly by just typing device in the start menu search box or just type in devmgmt.msc in command line.
    -Now open the Disk drives section and right click on your hard drive.

    dear::;

    shortcuts are links to programs, documents, files, or websites that you can add to your desktop or Start menu. Rather than searching through folders or the Internet every time you want to open a particular file or website, simply create a shortcut.


    To add a shortcut to your desktop


    If you use your desktop frequently, you should consider adding shortcuts to your favorite files to your desktop.


    Browse your My Documents folder and subfolders to find the file you want to create a shortcut for.


    Right-click the file you want to link to from your desktop, click Send To, and then click Desktop.


    Your file stays in the same place, but you now have a shortcut to that file on your desktop. Notice that the icon on your desktop has an arrow in the lower-left corner. This arrow indicates that you are clicking a shortcut and not the actual file.


    To add a shortcut to your Start menu


    In addition to being able to add shortcuts to your desktop, you can also add shortcuts on your Start menu. Shortcuts to your favorite files can appear alongside your programs.


    Browse your My Documents folder and subfolders to find the file you want to create a shortcut for.


    Drag the file to the Start button and hold it for about one second.


    When the Start menu opens, drag the file to the location where you want to add it.


    Drop the file where you want the shortcut, and a shortcut icon appears.

    Change the icons in your shortcuts


    Shortcuts include a picture called an icon, which can help you find a program or file faster. When you change your Windows theme, the new theme might include a set of custom icons that complement the look of the new desktop. For example, a jungle theme might change your My Computer icon to a giraffe. If you want, you can change one or more icons to something more interesting to you.


    The method for changing an icon depends on the icon type. You can:


    Change a system icon.


    Change any other icon on your computer.
