    there is a registry update file you can download.
    do a google search for
    Show IE Icon On Desktop.reg
    download it and click on it, ok to install it.

    There isn't a way in Windows itself?

    There is no option in the GUI to configure this setting, afaik.

    Where is the Internet Explorer desktop icon in Windows Vista?:
