How to Save an Excel 2010 Document As a Shortcut on Your Desktop

If you're anything like the average person, you probably have a lot of different programs open on your computer at any given time. This can make it difficult to find the file you're looking for, especially if it's buried in a folder somewhere. One way to make things easier is to create a shortcut to the file on your desktop. That way, you can access it quickly and easily without having to search for it.

Here's how to save an Excel 2010 document as a shortcut on your desktop:

  1. Open the document you want to create a shortcut to.
  2. Click the "File" tab.
  3. Click "Save As."
  4. Click the "Browse" button.
  5. Navigate to the location on your computer where you want to save the shortcut. For example, you might want to save it to your desktop.
  6. Click the "Save as type" drop-down menu and select "Shortcut."
  7. Click the "Save" button.

That's it! Now you have a shortcut to your Excel 2010 document on your desktop. You can double-click it to open the document quickly and easily, without having to search for it.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using shortcuts. First, they only work if the file they're pointing to is in the same location on your computer. So, if you move the file, the shortcut will no longer work. Second, shortcuts can be deleted just like any other file, so be careful not to accidentally delete them. Finally, if you want to rename a shortcut, right-click on it and select "Rename."

Shortcuts can be a great way to save time and make your life easier. Now that you know how to create them, put them to good use!
