Just like other versions of Microsoft Windows operating systems, creating shortcuts in Windows 10 is simple. Here is how:

  • Since creating shortcuts is a user-specific task, log in using the account whose desktop you want to add a shortcut to.
  • Once logged on, click the File Explorer icon from the taskbar.
  • From the opened File Explorer window, navigate to locate the object whose shortcut you want to create.
  • Once located, right-click the object.
  • On the displayed context menu, move the mouse pointer to Send to, and click the Desktop (create shortcut) option from the submenu that appears.Note: This will create a shortcut icon on the desktop screen.
  • Alternatively, you can click the Create shortcut option available in the context menu itself to create at the current location.
