F-secure Safe Desktop shortcut and Icon gone missing
Hello, the F-Secure Safe desktop shortcut and Icon have gone missing from my Windows 10 PC. I checked services and Safe is running, and the program files folder is there. I am unable to find the executable file to re-create the shortcut and so am unable to run a Scan.
thanks for any help
The desktop icon is not recreated automatically, since some users want to remove it and don't want it to come back. You can still open the main user interface from start menu entry or tray icon.
To recreate the shortcut, it should point to "C:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\SAFE\fs_ui_32.exe" (assuming you have the latest version 17.6)
