    Windows never was great. It's now extremely convoluted and not handicap friendly as illustrated by this icon to desktop fiasco. We use to be able to click on a program which is now called an APP and simply drag it to the desk top in one stroke. Windows and it's founder's programs use to crash constantly. I'll never trust any vaccine Bill Gates is associated with as he takes too many tries before his leadership gets it right, and then, once he has a stable program like Windows 7, his company screws it up in Windows 10. Furthermore, his company doesn't support old programs forcing people rent new ones to keep its revenue streaming in. Bill Gate's track record is far from exemplary, so he's not the person to be involved with anyone's health much less vaccines as once they're in a body mistakes cannot be deleted. Mistakes with past vaccines, which Mr. Gates was not involved with, include the polio vaccine. It is likely many during the 1950s and 60s carried Simian Virus 40 (SV 40) that may cause soft tissue cancer 30 to 50 years later. The vaccine model is a fair one, but human error makes them potentially genocidal.

    This video needs to be labeled "The long and Unnecessarily Complicated Creation of Short-cuts"

    when it is austrailian or indian you know it is going to work

    As a time saver, go to your start menu (little logo in the bottom corner). Find the app you want on the desktop, left click and drag it to the desired spot. Easy.

  23. Michael Onodu

    I knew a whole 5 minutes video on creating shortcuts was a red flag.

  24. Robert L Vincent

    You missed the point. I don't want to make a link to something on the computer. I want to make a link to something NOT on the computer, such as a webpage. I don't want to go through a browser.
