Thanks for the response.  I tried your suggestion.  The icon added would only 
allow edits for a file.  It was not a command type icon.  Also, just by 
serendipity I tried again and while in the add widget menu I clicked on the 
icon to right of the yellow star icon and then all of the icons on my desktop
