  • The easiest way to create a shortcut for a program is to find the exe file, than right click on it, and choose send to desktop option. You can alternatively right click on the desktop than select new, and left click on shortcut, than you can browse to the .exe file you want to create a shortcut to.


    Hope that helps,
