Hi, I want to add a shortcut for my Malwarbytes anti-malware application.  I found the folder using the start menu and right clicked on it, used 'send to desktop'.  the folder appeared on my desktop.  But the shortcut points me all the files in the folder.  I just wanted the scan program on my desktop and I do not know which file is the scan program.  Does anyone know?

You did it correct except for one thing.Don't send the folder to the desktop,open it up and send only the executible.

Hi Nora10514 :)

The correct Malwarebytes executable here is mbam.exe, like shown in the picture below:

You can simply right-click on that executable only and select Send to Desktop to create a shortcut for it.
