teamviewer working but no listing in menu

I downloaded Teamviewer software from their website. I downloaded the tar and extracted it. All is well and works great in Puppy 4.3.1. My problem is i have to use the console to start it because no desktop icon or menu listing.
Can i fix this or i'll just live with it. This version of puppy works great, i'm thrilled and enjoy it more than Lucid Pup. So far i learned how to download vlc and audacity and it's dependencies. I'm learning yaa. thanks for any help Tom

Navigate to the directory containing the Teamviewer executable and drag it to the desktop for a desktop link.
You could also create a desktop file for it in /usr/share/applications.
Open one of the desktop files there as text to see the layout of the file and modify one and save it as Teamviewer.desktop.
Then open a terminal, type "fix menus" and restart JWM or X.
That would give you a menu listing for it.
