    How to make a short cut for Facebook to Desktop

    I have windows 10. How do I make a short cut for Face Book to my desktop. T Y
     
  3. After upgrading to Windows 10, all my desktop files and short cuts are gone.

    Hi Ken,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    I understand that after upgrading to Windows 10, all of your desktop files and short cuts are gone. I will try to help you with this.

    I would like to let you know that the Windows.old folder contains all files and apps from the previous Windows installation. All the data associated with the previous OS would be located in this folder.

    Windows 10 is different from Windows 7. It is a new generation of Windows, with a wide range of experiences designed to usher in a new era of more personal computing.

    If you don’t find an icon for an application which you have installed, you can pin it to the desktop by performing these steps:


    • Search for the application which you need to add to the desktop.

    • Right-click on the application >> select open file location.

    • Right-click on the application >> select send to and click on Desktop.

    This will add the application which you want it to be on the desktop.

    Hope this helps. Keep us informed to help you further.

    Can't open any of my files that are on my desktop as short cuts

    Dropped short cut

    Once again I find myself looking for a long used short cut. Apparently Windows 10 and Bing do not like Yahoo. I downloaded 10 and was comfortable navigating around. The next day, I logged on and Yahoo was among the missing. Easy to go to Windows Edge
    and then to Yahoo, but the program will not right click to a drop down and choices of creating a short cut on the desk top. I tried Mr. Smithers fix to get Google Earth back, but yahoo is not listed in the "Apps' section. Any suggestions. Thank you in advance.
