While Windows 10 enables us to pin a shortcut to start or to our taskbars many still prefer a shortcut directly on their desktop. Here are the simple steps to create a shortcut on your desktop

Open your Start menu and find the program you wish to create a shortcut for. Right Click the program's icon and select More -> Open file location. (Screenshot below)
