I would like to move an icon that is on my taskbar to my desktop.  I know it simple, but I can not for the life of me remember the procedure.

Hello
no actually not with windows 10, it's not the same thing
If you right click you should have for example:
detach from the task bar (in french):

this removes the icon, there is generally no way to simply move it on the desktop
In general, you have to find the program in the started menu and create the shortcut
select the file left click move to the desktop release!

I finally remembered how to move icons from Start to desktop.

Settings>Home>Personalization>Start.  Go to "Use full start menu."  Tick-off.

Start menu will be smaller which gives the opportunity to move icons to the desktop.  You then can go back and "tick on full start menu.

Hope this works for you as it did me.

No bad for an old broad.

Hello
sorry, although i don't use it, can you give screenshots of what you indicate, because here i don't see what it is
I'm in the FR version, so I don't see which option you're talking about!
In the options start me I have this:

Start menu will be smaller which gives the opportunity to move icons to the desktop.
And so it corresponds to what I show in pictures, my menu is already reduced in size without having changed anything?
That does not allow you to move the shortcuts from the bar, but from the start menu, right ??

I am not sure if the solution will allow you to move task bar icons to desktop.  Let me take a look.  BTW, I do not speak French.
