When right click on the application you need, a msgbox appears. Select create shortcut. Then paste it on your desktop.

You can right click on your start-program list and the same msgbox will appear. You can drag and drop icons into your start-program list as well.

To control the shortcut, click right on it, select properties and check the link of the shortcut.
