    The search is there to find apps, trying to drag an icon/shortcut to the desktop from the search or start menu does not work, what were Microsoft thinking ? :g:

    Do we have to physically delve into the path with explorer and create a shortcut from there, not very practical with all the times you have to click, click, click...

    I know Classic Shell very well, but I do not want to load more 3rd party startup items with Win10

    Pin to Start, then drag to desktop!
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
