Click on the shortcut and press the delete key. If it is just a shortcut then that will do it. If it is the actual program then I don't suggest deleting it.

If it's an actual program on the desktop and not just a shortcut, highlight it, press ctrl+c, ctrl+v it in a different place, like Program Files, and then delete the one on the desktop.
