    Defragmenter in Win8

    Good day to you all, where can I find Disk Defragmenter in win8 (used to be in Acc/system tools in win7) and can I pin it onto taskbar? Thanks.

    If you'd like to make a desktop shortcut, which you could then drag to the taskbar, if you like, you can use this line in your shortcut:


    Good Luck and Happy 2014!


    PS: There are many things that we used to have on our desktop as shortcuts, but on Win 8 or 8.1 they are just HARD to find.
    So once I've found them I make a shortcut to them and put them in a little folder on my Utilities Disk.
    Then I write a batch file to dump them on the desktop, during an install/Setup of the OS.
    Things I have shortcuts to, include:
    Quick Shutdown
    Disk Cleanup
    Control Panel

    Life is simpler when you don't have to go hunting for everything you need.

    Happy 2014!

Disk Defragmenter Doesn't Do Anything
When I click Optimize on a drive, it analyzes for a few seconds and then says "Needs optimization (17% fragmented)". It doesn't actually defragment though. This is on a regular hard drive, not SSD. What's wrong? By the way, I have Scheduled optimization turned off.
