Copy Shortcuts From Your Start Menu

Program installations usually make a nice group in your Start Menu for launching the installed application,
however if you do not shortcut on your desktop and you would like to have one, try this:

1. Click Start
2. Go to All Programs > [name of the application]
3. Right click on the the icon which launches the application
4. Select Send To > Desktop (create shortcut)
5. You will now have a shortcut on your desktop

This is much quicker than finding the target executable in your Program Files directory and it does not prepend
"Shortcut to" in front of the icon.
