I installed both Photoshop and Bridge CC today. After the installaion, which went correctly, there were no shortcut icons on my desktop. How do I get them there? By the way, I also installed Scout and Lightroom and both icons were on my destop after installation was complete. Why not the PS and Bridge?
Got a specific OS?
Why do you need icons on your desktop – can’t you just open the applications from the application folder?
I have limited experience with Windows 8, so I don't know if it is new to 8.1, but I really like pinning favourite apps to the Task bar, as we do in Windows 7. Launching from Desktop icons is good to have as an option I guess, but it can be a struggle getting to the desktop with a bunch of apps running.
I also like launching from the Windows 8 Start screen by starting to type the app's name, or just clicking on a well placed icon (on the left). This has paralells with the Desktop, but the Start screen is so much quicker to get to. I really must make the effort to get a better grip of Windows 8, because I am actually quite liking it.
And call me shallow, but I love some of those little cheap as chips Win8 apps like you have on your phone or tablet. Although, come to think of it, I only seem to use them a few times after installing, and then forget about them.
