What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Open control panel / admin tools. Then you can drag and drop files or shortcuts into that folder.
The reason they disappeared in the first place was you probably deleted or moved the start menu item of the same name and so Windows helpully updated the control panel to reflect the changes.
