Shortcuts displayed on the desktop actually come from two sources (just
as shortcuts from Start-Programs come from two sources)
If in Explorer you go to:
* C:\Documents and Settings\<current user>\Desktop and then to
* C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
you'll see what I mean.
The ones in All Users\Desktop sort first. If you never use another user
name you can move them all into one place or take advantage of the dual
sources to move some "important" ones either to the beginning or the end.
