    ya, as others said, you can make a short cut for this, but it frequently updates so you'll have to fiddle a bit with it.

    best to just remember its like a tech tool to fix computers. they make them portable so the tech can transport it on a usb to customer's computer. i just put in in a folder and re-download it occasionally for a checkup.

    You can create a desktop shortcut by placing the .exe file first in a folder or in your desktop & run from there You can also run it from a dock (such as Stardock Free) If you still don't use a dock check it out! It's gonna change the way you use your desktop & with much more efficiency

    It is an executable file. Save it to someplace you'll remember (my downloads.) Find it in windows explorer. Right click on the file adwcleaner.exe and select 'send to desktop'. There's your shortcut.
