Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, you will not be able to add any icons to the desktop start page manually. The only way to do this, is by adding functional applications like Word, Excel, etc. It was meant to give users a familiar desktop environment for business centers and internet cafes. Based on what you have mentioned, the best solution is the Start Screen. You can add specific Web links, buttons to your applications and still have the desktop feel. Here are some tutorials videos to assist:
