Windows Start Menu - Link to any file
« on: January 15, 2020, 07:32:57 PM »
Hello All,
I created a how-to screen capture video explaining in detail how to use a particular piece of software in the hope that the user would find it useful. 
My challenge was to put that file somewhere obvious so the user could find it.  I opted for the Windows Start Menu.
Here's how I did it.
Create a shortcut to the file by right-clicking on the file name listing in File Explorer and choose Create Shortcut
In File Explorer, open Windows (C)
Click on ProgramData
Click on Microsoft
Click on Windows
Click on Start Menu
Click on Programs
Paste the Shortcut that you created in Step 1 into the Programs folder
That shortcut will appear on the Start Menu
