Adding the STS Desktop Shortcut

Some users of Microsoft Windows operating systems may not see the STS logo icon in the desktop shortcut. Please follow these simple steps to add back the icon:

1. If you have not already done so, download the STS Desktop Shortcut for Windows 7 and XP by clicking on this link. You should see something similar to the following window:

3. Select "Save File," and click "OK." By default, the file is normally sent to your Downloads folder. If you have configured your system differently, the file may be elsewhere.

5. Double-click on the file "selected transfer services" to unzip it. The file icon will probably change to look like the one below—a blue-green sphere.

6. Now, copy the unzipped file to your desktop by simply clicking on the file and dragging it to your desktop. You may delete the file remaining in your Downloads folder by right clicking and choosing "Delete."

What people are saying about Selected members

"This is the first funeral I have helped plan. The most meaningful action was when Mom died and the person who came at 2:00 a.m. was wearing a suit and tie. That simple action—showing respect to the family and Mom's remains—is so appreciated. All the little extras Groce did for us were above expectations; they knew what we needed before we did and they had everything prepared and ready when needed."
