Running the Script
Finally, your kids can see their creation outside the programming environment by creating a short cut on the desktop that runs Merlin Programmer for Kids. Right click on the desktop, select create new shortcut. Then simply browse to find a script file in “C:\Program Files\Merlin Programmer for Kids\scripts\ “. Select that file and finish the shortcut. When your child double clicks on that shortcut icon on the desktop, the script will run on the desktop in the apparent absence of the programming environment, and it will look like an independent program has been produced. The script will end automatically. You can also double click on the script file in Explorer to run it.
