    Accidently Deleted Windows 8.1 Shortcuts


    Hi People,
    So i have accidently deleted my windows 8.1 shortcuts (shortcuts for :notepad,control panel,paint...and other default windows tools) i was wondering if someone upload his shortcut file on free file sharing website or give me a link for a place where i can download them back.
    Thanks.

    Which ones you need ?

    A list please.

    I'll try to help.

    You could go into System 32 & SYSWOW & create shortcuts from the .exe files.
