Desktop shortcuts in Vista?

Quick question. How do I create a desktop shortcut and a taskbar launch for Windows Mail? Right now I have to access it from the start menu and it's a pain. I'm using Vista home premium sp1.
Thanks.

I don't have Vista but maybe the old way of right clicking on it in the start menu and selecting Send To Desktop (shortcut) might work

Good call, DSgamby. It wouldn't go from the start menu, but when I went to Programs and right clicked it, I was able to send it to the desktop. Thanks!
