    Is there any way to pin something to the Windows 10 desktop?


    Hello,

    I saw that somebody asked this about 4years ago already but they did not get any replies/answer so decided to ask again myself.

    Is there any way of making a shortcut, pinning it to the Windows 10 desktop (not the taskbar/menu) and having it stay there no matter what happens to the other icons/shortcuts (such as auto-arranging)?
    If it can't be done normally in Win10 is there any third party app or program that would do it?

    ThanksIs there any way to pin something to the Windows 10 desktop? :)

    :)

    pin Facebook and Tumblast app to desktop?

    I have downloaded the Facebook and Tumblast apps to my Windows 10 computer and when I right click on them in the list of apps, I can pin them to the start menu and the taskbar, but not the desktop. Is there any way to pin them to the desktop or create a
    shortcut? I **don't** want it create a shortcut that opens FB and Tumblr in my browser. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    KJ

  3. How do I pin the individual programs to the desktop in Windows 10?

    Hello Jim,

    There is a simple way to create a shortcut on your desktop. You can follow these steps to easily pin an app on the desktop:

    • Open the Start menu.
    • Find the app or program you want.
    • Click on the tile and drag it to your desktop.

    NOTE: If the Start screen in Windows 10 is enabled, you need to turn on the
    Start menu in order to create desktop shortcuts for apps.

    You can follow these steps to turn on Start menu:

    • Open Taskbar and navigation properties.
    • Switch to the Start menu tab.
    • Uncheck the option labelled Use the start menu instead of the Start screen.
    • Click on the Apply button.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.
