    My Computer Shortcut

    How can I create a shortcut for My Computer (This PC) on desktop in Windows 10?
    Actually there are 2 kind of shortcut for My Computer:

    1. If I just open File Explorer, from left panel I drag and drop This PC to desktop and a shortcut will be created on desktop (This PC - Shortcut). If I right click on that shortcut and choose Properties, "This PC - Shortcut Properties" windows will be opened, which is NOT what I want.

    2. I need This PC shortcut that when I right click on it and choose Properties, "Control Panel\System and Security\System" is shown! And I don't know how to create this one!

    Please advise.

    Where do you want the shortcut ?

    On the desktop, the start menu or the taskbar ?

    If on the desktop then right click the desktop, choose personalazation, then themes, then Desktop Icon settings.

    I totally forget how I pinned it to the taskbar, but you can easily pin it to the start menu.
