Can I create a desktop icon for the Washington State Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) Knowledge Base (eService Center)?

Yes. You can create an icon shortcut to the Washington State Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) Knowledge Base (eService Center) in five easy steps.

  3. Click this link: to open the AOC Knowledge Base in a NEW window and repeat Step 2 on the new window (if necessary), so that you can see the desktop again.
    NOTE: It is important that you open a new window to the Knowledge Base rather than going on to Step 4 using THIS answer window. If you were to use this answer window to create your new desktop icon shortcut, the new shortcut would take you directly to THIS answer, not to the main page of the Knowledge Base.
  4. In the new window you just opened, click the browser icon to the left of the URL (Address) field, drag it onto the desktop area. The cursor will show a shortcut arrow as shown below:

    When the icon is in the desktop area, drop it (release the mouse).

  5. If you wish to change the name of the new shortcut you have created, RIGHT click the icon you have just placed on the desktop, and select Rename as shown below:

    Type a new name of your choosing, as shown in this example:

    Press ENTER to accept the new name.
