Cant Find atom.exe


I just installed atom in my windows 10 pc. but i cant find the atom.exe file so i have to reinstall it every time i want to use it. This is getting annoying, but i really want to be using atom.


Atom installs to the %LOCALAPPDATA%\atom folder. There should be an entry in the start menu under GitHub, Inc where you can find and launch atom.


I tried looking for it but it is not appearing in the start menu.
i also checked the .atom folder in the Users/local/.atom but the .exe file isn’t there too.



Could you make a screen capture of the following:

The purple would be the user name of the PC where this comes from… this should be your user name. Additionally - we assume you are using the default installation configurations.


.atom is your local settings folder.
