This is a Windows question, not a Python one.  But I'll take a crack at
it, since I used to run Windows.

Use right-click on the desktop and choose  "create shortcut" from the
context menu.  Fill in the name of your script.  Give the shortcut a
useful name.

This assumes that you have the usual file associations stored in the
registry.  They are what tells the Windows system how to run a *.py file
