    When I right click on the desktop and select New, then Shortcut, nothing
    happens. I can't create a new shortcut on the desktop or for that matter
    anywhere. I just experimented by creating a new folder on the desktop,
    then tried to create a new folder and...Nothing.

    Windows 7 Pro.

    just right-drag your main icon to the desktop - you will then get a choice -
    select shortcut
