It always helps to give info on your OS for things like this.

If you're using Vista, click on your Start menu (bottom left of your screen by default), on the right-hand side you should see an option that says Games, click it.

Right-click where it says Football Manager 2009 and select Copy, go to your desktop (Windows key+D), right click again and select Copy SHortcut, this then works.

right click on the desktop, click to create new shortcut, you then need to go into your c drive then sports interactive folder, you should be able to create a shortcut from that

Go to C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009 and double click on fm.exe
To create a shortcut on your desktop right click on fm.exe and while holding in the right click button drag it do your desktop and release and then select 'Create Shortcut Here' by left clicking
