On a Windows PC, creating a desktop shortcut is a very good thing when accessing some frequently used folders, files and apps

Here's how to do just that:

So right-click on any file, folder or app.

Then select Make Alias. 

The shortcut will be created and have the same file name with the word “alias” added to the end.

Then you can drag and move the shortcut anywhere you want.

You can also rename and remove the “alias” part if you feel like. Click on it to test it and it will definitely work.
