    Hello,

    I deleted the shortcut for my calculator and can't seem to find it in my programs. Does anyone know how and where to find it?

  • Open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32. In the System32 folder, locate the 'Calc.exe' file. Right click this file and select the 'Create shortcut' option. Click OK in the dialog box and a shortcut to the calculator will be placed on your Desktop.

     

    You can move the shortcut to any location from there. You can also rename the shortcut to whatever name you wish to use.

  • Vista may be old, but then so is my '65 Mustang ragtop and both run better than any of the latest stuff I have seen. Thanks for the fix Ronnie. Glad the answer was still here.
