Where can I find the shortcut desktop icon for Brave in Windows 8.1?



I just installed Brave on a laptop running Windows 8.1 64-bit. The browser works great. But when installing there was no prompt to create a shortcut on the desktop. When I search for the Brave application after selecting Window > Search (Everywhere) and entering the text Brave, the program doesn’t appear.

The Brave build that I installed is as follows:
Brave: 0.18.14
rev: ad92d02
Muon: 4.3.6
libchromiumcontent: 60.0.3112.78
Node.js: 7.9.0
Update Channel: dev
OS Platform: Microsoft Windows
OS Release: 6.3.9600
OS Architecture: x64

No “Brave” folder appears under these directories. In one of these folders I expect to see a sub-directory named “Brave” or “Brave Software”.
C:\Program Files
C:\Program Files (x86)

Now, I’ve still got the install executable in one of my directories where I downloaded the program. But I can’t locate where on this PC the program was installed so I can drag the Brave Shortcut icon to my desktop. Normally after every program install in Windows there is a shortcut to the application somewhere. I haven’t yet rebooted since installing Brave. Or maybe I’m just looking in the wrong place.

Thanks for your help.


I found it. C:\Users[my name]\AppData\Local\brave\Brave.exe
