Here's a cool tip for Windows 98, ME or XP:

Add Google to your desktop - just put the following code into notepad:

<HTML>
<BODY>
<center>
<FORM method=GET action='http://www.google.com/search'>
<TABLE bgcolor='#FFFFFF'><tr><td>
<A HREF='http://www.google.com/'>
<IMG SRC='http://www.google.com/logos/Logo_40wht.gif' border='0'
ALT='Google' align='absmiddle'></A>
<INPUT TYPE=text name=q size=25 maxlength=255 value=''>
<INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE='Google Search'>
</td></tr></TABLE>
</FORM>
</center>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Save it in C:\WINDOWS\Web as Google.HTM. Now add it to your active desktop: Right click the desktop, select active desktop and click 'customize my desktop'. Click Add, No, and type in C:\WINDOWS\Web\Google.HTM in the location box. Now click OK. This looks best on a white desktop background, but you can still have anything you want. Clicking the logo will go to GOOGLE.COM or type your search in the box and click 'Search Google'. A browser window will open and your search results will be displayed.

Nice preview :-)

You will have to hit reply to the above post to see the actual code if your browser interpreted it.

Those who run WindowsXP, active desktop looks aweful when enabled, the icons especially.
