Q.  I have a Freeware Program that I use quite often that didnít install a shortcut on the desktop or I some how deleted it if it did. How do I create another shortcut to this program?

A.  To create a shortcut in Microsoft Windows, follow one of the below steps.

Create a shortcut within the folder the program resides

One of the easiest methods of creating a shortcut is to first create the shortcut in the folder that the program resides, and then copy and paste or move that shortcut to where you want it. To do this, follow the below steps.

1. Open the folder or directory that contains the program for which you wish to create a shortcut.

2. Right-click on the program and click "Create Shortcut".

3. This will create a shortcut named "Shortcut to <your program>" in the directory you are in. If you wish to rename this shortcut, Right-click the file and click rename.

4. Once the above steps have been completed, you can copy or cut this shortcut and paste it anywhere to execute this program.

Create a shortcut using Microsoft's wizard.

Another method of creating a shortcut is move to the location or folder you wish to create the shortcut, right-click on an empty location of the folder or screen, and click create shortcut; or if you're in Windows Explorer, click File, New, and then Shortcut. Once in the shortcut wizard window, you will be able to browse to the location of the file you wish to create the shortcut to create the shortcut.
