✔ Best Answer
Do you mean the desktop icon? I'll assume that for now.

Find the file Chrome.exe and make a shortcut to it by right clicking the Chrome.exe file and selecting "Create shortcut". It might put the shortcut on the desktop by default but if it puts it in the same area as the Chrome.exe file then cut and paste onto the desktop.

The location of the file Chrome.exe can vary with different versions of Windows 7 and Chrome. Use Search to find Chrome.exe then right click the result and note down the path given. If that doesn't work out here are two possible paths to Chrome.exe - look here first:
C Drive > Program Files (maybe "Program Files (x86)" > Google > Chrome > Application > Chrome.exe

If you can't find it there do this:
First make sure you are set to show hidden folders and files, and all file extensions.
Go to Folder Options > View. Put the radio button (blob) in "Show hidden files, folders and drives". In the same place uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types". I usually leave them set that way (particularly showing file extensions) but it's up to you. Now follow this path to find Chrome.exe
C drive > Users > {user name} > AppData > Local > Google > Chrome > Application > Chrome.exe

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
