Here is one way.

Click start and programs or all programs depending your desktop. Find Nero in the lineup and hover the mouse pointer over it. You will find a few selections, I used Nero Start Smart and again right click, go to "send To" and choose "desktop create shortcut".

Hi Rick, Thanks for the info., but Nero is not listed on my start programs. I have nothing in my programs for it.I have the file in my program files, but there is nothing there to create an icon for it. I have to go to run and type the name Nero 7Ultra Edition to get it to open. It's a pain.

Start/My Computer/C:\ (or your harddrive letter)/Programs Files/Ahead/Nero. Find the icon in the Nero Folder, the right click, Send To/Desktop create icon.

If there is Folder with Ahead or Nero in Progam Files
by darclew1 / April 2, 2007 11:50 AM PDT

My says NERO Folder and in that is NERO StartSmart which is the Nero Icon. right click and select save as a shortcut to the desktop. Rename it to NERO StartSmart and delete the "shortcut to" part out. If you cannot find that, go to Search and type in NERO StartSmart, you may have put that folder in the wrong place. Also, search for NERO & Ahead. If you find nothing, it isn't installed. Darrell

Glad to hear it! Mine were all downloaded but I put a check
by darclew1 / April 2, 2007 10:29 PM PDT

mark in the box so I could save it to a zip drive and also intall it too. I have just what is needed, no INCD, no Showtime (have PowerDVD), no NEROMix and more. If you have NERO 7.7 Ultra, there is a free update to Enhanced and it is Vista compatible. Darrell

Being a blonde isn't good, I have 3 friends and 2 are real

blondes. Nice try Shurl.Hubby of one told me so, another showe top of her pubic hairs in a two piece swimsuit. She was my first love of Loves but she is now married also at age 48 she had a son born. As to the box I referred to that is on the download of whatever is a small box on the lower left side of it. Says download but don't install. So Nero can be downloaded into Program Files and then installed when you are off-line. Then you can send that .exe and put ia notepad with your registration on it to the same and you can then save those on a CD-R. .exe is executable, that way, you can install it on your computer and copy and paste the registration number in the box from the notepad. I had missplaced my paperwork but I can't missplace the zip drive or CD-R. Darrell

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
