    Pinning files to links context menu

    If I right-click the Excel link in my windows start menu, the context menu displays several pinned excel files that I commonly use. I need to change the properties (file location) in one of these pinned links. I recall creating some desktop short cuts and then moving them to a specific shell folder like shell:appsfolder, but cannot locate the correct folder or find original instructions I followed to create these links. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    Note: This appears similar to Recent files....but they are in fact pinned!
