    Lost shortcut to Windows Media Center

    I have obviously deleted the shortcut to Windows Media Center. I am running
    Windows Vista Home Premium. I have tried searching and browsing without
    success. Could someone please post the shortcut path for me?

    top the the Start Menu.

    I have tried that; it does not appear. Can you copy the path for me and
    post it?

    Re: Lost shortcut to Windows Media Center

    I have this problem also. I just wondered if there was a way to get an icon
    for Windows Media Center back because I really do not want to have to run a
    command line every time I want to open Windows Media Center without entering
    a disc into my disc drive.
