Where Is That Shortcut?

Occasionally, when I install an application in Windows 10 it does not add a shortcut to either my desktop or my Start menu. This happened recently when installing Frontpage 2003 on my new laptop. I will use that one as an example but you can use whichever one you need a shortcut for.

right-click-app

Win+Q and type FrontPage. Right-click on the app link and choose Open file location.

create-shortcut
When the file location displays, right-click on the app and choose to Create shortcut.

create-on-desktop

Yes, you want to create it on the desktop.

desktop-shortcut

The shortcut appears on the desktop.

right-click-app

To place a shortcut on the start menu, Win+Q and type FrontPage.

Right-click on the app link and choose Pin to start.

start-menu-shortcut

The app is now in the start menu. From there, you can right-click and if desired, Pin to taskbar.

I hope this tip is useful to you.
