How to create a shortcut in Windows 10

Shortcuts are links to various types of objects on your computer like a program, file, folder, or another computer, and it can be placed on your Desktop, Taskbar or Start menu. Here's how to create a shortcut in Windows 10.

To create a shortcut in Windows 10, you need to know where the object is located on your computer. Open File Explorer (left-click the File Explorer icon on the Taskbar or left-click on the Start Menu and select File Explorer) and navigate to the object you want to create a shortcut to. If you're going to create a Desktop shortcut, make sure File Explorer is not in full-screen mode.

  • For a shortcut on the Start menu, right-click on the object and select Pin to Start.
  • For a shortcut on the Taskbar, right-click on the object and select Pin to Taskbar.
  • For a shortcut on the Desktop, press and hold the right mouse button on the object and drag it to the Desktop. From the context menu that appears, select Create shortcuts here.
