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.
