It would be my pleasure to help you set up a desktop icon for QuickBooks. To verify, are you using QuickBooks Online (QBO)? Since QBO is primarily accessible within a web browser, you can create a browser shortcut that will accomplish just this.
The steps for doing so will vary largely based on which browser you're using, so I'll provide the instructions for Google Chrome below. If you're using a different browser, just let me know and I'll get you moving in the right direction.
Creating a shortcut link on your desktop with Google Chrome
From within Chrome, click the 3 dots (⋮) button to open the menu.
Select More Tools > Create shortcut.
If prompted, select that you'd like to place the shortcut on your Desktop and/or Taskbar.
Minimize Chrome and verify that the shortcut is appearing on your Desktop.
This will allow you to create shortcuts for whichever websites you frequently visit. We also offer a QuickBooks Online Windows/Mac App that operates outside of a regular web browser, just follow the link to learn more.
