Drag-and-drop icons from the Windows desktop to WordPerfect's toolbar or a property bar

A little known feature in WordPerfect 9 and 10 (and perhaps in earlier versions) lets you drag-and-drop a program (or macro) shortcut from your Windows deskop to the WordPerfect toolbar or property bar. Be sure it's a shortcut (it will have a small arrow on the icon), left-click on it, and drag it to the WordPerfect toolbar or property bar (note that the latter may be a context-sensitive bar, so it may not always be visible).

To reposition it, just hold down the <Alt> key and drag the icon to a new location.

To remove it later, just hold down the <Alt> key and drag the icon from the toolbar or property bar.
