    When I boot up a Windows 10 Pro system, I always have to dig to make it look like Windows 7. :(

    Is there a program/script that can populate the desktop with shortcuts like:

    My Computer
    Network Neighborhood
    Control Panel

    And many others? I'm tired of fishing for them manually...

    Thanks!

    :)
