Hi folks
If you want file explorer as a desktop icon and short cut on the latest builds (the old way doesn't work as you don't get the "open file location" option simply use the browser to go to C:\windows\explorer.exe

Then in properties etc simply choose - more options, send to desktop (create short cut).

Rename at will.

cheers
