HI and welcome to the Forum
I don't quite understand what your problem is? If you right click on a shortcut on your desktop and click "Properties" where do you see "open file location" as it doesn't appear when I do it in any browser? If you just right click on the icon on your desktop you will see this:

Sorry just read the next thread and i did indeed miss that box

Try right clicking a desktop shortcut and select "Properties". Is the target location correct? What happens if you click the "Open File Location" from there? See image below;

Now I have looked more closely I find that particularly with MS Office programs the Target is shown as just the title of the program not the path to the exe so the Open File Location button is greyed out! see below:
