Getting back the Sent to desktop as a shortcut

I am obsessive about cleaning up stuff on a computer - the one in the shop lost it's send to desiktop as a shortcut link missing and I found this: here
geekgirl.tip: Missing Send To…Desktop as Shortcut
If you can't find the Send To...Desktop as Shortcut option on your Send To menu or if you accidentally delete its shortcut from the SendTo folder, here's how to get it back:
  1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the SendTo folder.
  2. Right-click in an empty space in the SendTo folder and select New, Text Document from the pop-up menu.
  3. Name the newly created text document:
    Desktop as Shortcut.DESKLINK
    and press Enter.
  4. You'll be warned that changing the file's extension may render the file unusable. Click Yes to change it anyway.
