    you have to create a custom shortcut with
    javaw.exe -Xmx512m -jar JDownloader.jar
    run in your jd folder
    use specific icon and use the one from jdownloader.exe

    that way you have an icon thats to start and same for running jd (no longer two icons)

    javaw.exe -Xmx512m -jar JDownloader.jar

    is what you are supposed to enter as target when you create the shortcut.

    Just right click the desktop, select new/shortcut and follow the prompts...

    Then try to specify an absolute path to the executable.

    Like C:\Directory\Folder\Subfolder\javaw.exe -Xmx512m -jar JDownloader.jar

    Replace path with whatever the right one is...i have no idea where this is normally installed...



    EDIT:

    Better still: Go to the executable, (wherever it is located), and make a shortcut for it. Then open the shortcuts properties (rightclick) and append
    -Xmx512m -jar JDownloader.jar to the path in the target field. (Make sure that there is a space between javaw.exe and the appendix.) Then put the shortcut wherever you want to have it...
