    How to put This PC icon on desktop


    I've got build 10159 installed. I can't find a way to put the This PC icon on the desk top. That should be a simple task. Has any one done it?

    Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize, it will bring up the Settings Menu.

    Choose Themes > Desktop Icon Settings

    Right click Start>File Explorer and find This PC. Right click on This PC and drag it to the desktop, or task bar, or Quick Access . . .

    That works, too--like a charm.

    Now pick the one that has the least keystrokes. I didn't count 'em.
