    Older Executable -- how to move to Start Menu


    I came across an older executable that seems to run fine on WinX so I'd like to put it onto the Start Menu but I can't figure out how to do that. Can you help?

    Press Windows Key + R and Copy and Past this in and hit OK. %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs Now create a shortcut to the EXE into the window and it will appear in the start menu.

    You can create a shortcut of the .exe file, and place the shortcut in the Start menu All Apps list. The tutorial below can help give more details.
