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?

box type: Windows Media Center and the icon will appear at the

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

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.

1. Right-click on your Desktop and select New > Shortcut.
2. Type: %SystemRoot%\ehome\ehshell.exe in the box.
3. Click on Next.
4. Type: Windows Medias Center in the box.
5. The start icon for Windows Media Center will appear on your desktop.
