    How to Create Shortcut of any Application in windows 8 as there is no any Option to do the same?

    I have a PC where i have already installed windows 8. One week ago, I installed google chrome in my computer which made a shortcut itself in the desktop. My son who is 10 years ago deleted the shortcut which was present on the desktop. Now I am not able to create a shortcut for the same Application as There is no Option. Although it appears in All Programs and start menu. When I right clicked on it, There was no any Option to create a shortcut for the same.What should I do now?

    STEP 2: Right Click on the Application and you can find many Options on the Bottom of the Screen. Choose Pin to Start.

    STEP 3: Your Shortcut for Paint is Created and you can place it any where you want. You can Create Shortcuts for Every Application as same as this Application.
