Atom installs into AppData/Local/atom. When you have Atom open, you can attach a shortcut to your taskbar by right-clicking on the tab. You can also open Atom from the command line or Run with the command atom.

The first thing I do when I get a new computer is turn off all the “dumbing down” settings in Explorer. Then I use someone else’s computer and remember all over again that there are some people who go through life without ever seeing the extensions on their files.
