Microsoft Windows 95 and Windows NT use icons to graphically represent applications, folders, and files. You can create a shortcut of any of these objects. Shortcuts placed on your desktop allow quick and easy access to the programs and files that you use most.

Follow the steps below to create ISIS/Base and ISIS/Draw 2.1.4 shortcuts on your Windows 95 or Windows NT desktop:

  1. Open Explorer.
  2. Go to C:Program FilesISIS214 and locate the application files IBase32 and IDraw32.
  3. Left-click the executable file, for example IBase32, to highlight it.
  4. Right-click on the file and select Create shortcut from the menu. A new file, Shortcut to <filename> appears in the folder. The shortcut file remains highlighted.
  5. Place your mouse pointer on top of the shortcut. Hold down the left mouse button and drag the shortcut onto your Windows desktop.
  6. To start the program, double-click on the shortcut icon on your desktop.
