    Icons on desktop for common shortcuts

    Hi,

    How would I put an icon on the desktop for things like:

    shutdown
    change resolution

    Thanks,

    Simon.

    You can also write an Applescript and put the script on your desktop. You might be able to use Automator to do this as well. I haven't used it, but if you don't know Applescript (or can't find a suitable script on the web), you might be able to use that.

    If you get adventurous, you can tie those scripts to the Speakable Items list and voice control them.
