I cant find atom in my windows 10


I was installing atom for me to practice programming after I installed atom there wasn’t any shortcut to be found in the desktop.

The shortcuts don´t appear

I don’t recall Atom placing a shortcut on the desktop by default. To make a shortcut yourself, you can find the program in your user folder at AppData/Local/atom/atom.exe.


Continuing on what @DamnedScholar said ->

  • Key press: WinKey + r
  • Type in: %localappdata%/atom
  • Hold AltKey while drag-drop atom.exe onto the desktop

@DamnedScholar: On my last install (V1.27.2) the link was placed on the desktop.
