How does one get the This PC shortcut icon on the desktop? I can access This PC through the Search option on Charms but when I right click on the icon, there is no option to create a shortcut on the desktop. I am running Windows 8.1

On the desktop check that file explorer is pinned to the taskbar. If not then go to start page and click the arrow bottom left for the All Apps page. Scroll to right and under Windows System, right click file explorer and pin to taskbar.

On the desktop open file explorer. Expand the tree to the left if you have to. You should see the "This PC" icon. Drag it to the desktop.
