    New Desktop Shortcut does Not show up in my Start Menu


    New Desktop Shortcut does Not show up in my Start Menu

    I created 2 New shortcuts 1 for Shutdown Per Not A Real Problem, Just annoying One! - Windows 10 Forums
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

    and 1 for Restart per Solved How to create a reboot shortcut? - Windows 10 Forums
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0

    I change the Icon on both of them with icons I downloaded.

    They were added to and work fine from my Taskbar { Deleted Desk Top Shortcuts } , but if I click on Pin to Start neither of them show up in my Start Menu nor under Apps .

    "alphanumeric I use a shortcut, pinned to my taskbar and start menu. "

    I did Reboot.

    Any Ideas or help ?

    Thank You Rick

    Usually when I pin something to the Start menu it ends up at the bottom of the list of Tiles so I click it to drag back up to the top of that list.
