  1. Create a desktop shortcut to start a Windows 10 Process


    I'm having a problem with the Windows' "Spooler SubSystem App" (spoolsv.exe) on one of my PCs and I've set its startup type in the services control panel to "manual". I almost never print from that PC and it is not connected directly to any printers so I don't anticipate this being a problem, but I would like to be able to start that service easily if I should find I need it. So I'm thinking a desktop shortcut would come in handy. The only problem I'm having is I haven't been able to find instructions on how to create that shortcut (or if it's even possible).

    If anyone can point me to a website with instructions or post them here I'd appreciate it.

    Windows 10 Home Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.449)

    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Keyboard shortcuts to open programs:

    Create a shortcut on the desktop to whatever program you want. Right click -> Properties and fill in the field there. Sadly the shortcut needs to remain on the desktop, but you can hide it.

    Fun fact: If you had keyboard shortcuts for programs pinned to your Windows 7 start menu, those shortcuts still work when you update to Windows 10.
