    I think Windows 10 just wanted to be finicky.

    Did the initialization file remain in the portable folder during all this?

    yes! I created a shortcut to the .exe file. I've done it before so I know it can be done.

    The All apps screen and Start might need time to catch up for portable software or for manually added shortcuts.

    It seems to speed things up if you pin the shortcut (in ProgramData\....\Start menu) to Start. Check All apps, if it's there, unpin from Start (unless you want it there)

    Even after restarting the computer it didn't show in the All apps menu. I gave up and and used the install version. I have done this with earlier releases on Win 10 and it worked without a problem. I might try it again later with different programs.

    I just tried it again with a media player called VLC. It worked as soon as I placed the shortcut in the folder. I did everything the same way as I did when I was trying to place the shortcut for HWiNFO64.exe. Windows 10 can be finicky when it wants to.
