    How do I create a camera app shortcut on the desktop?


    Instead of pinning the camera app to the taskbar, I'd like it to be a desktop shortcut, but there is no right-click option for that, and I can't find where the camera app folder is located in Windows 10. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

    From the 'All Apps' Menu, click and hold and drag-n-drop it onto your Desktop:
