f.lux location in file tree?

I installed f.lux and it appears in my systray and works just fine.
But where is f.lux installed in my file tree?
I can't find it in Program Files or Users or anywhere.
IOW, where did it install itself?
I would also like to put a shortcut for it on Desktop.
Tnx.

Found it and made a shortcut to Desktop.
That was really hidden! Tnx!
Is there a way to make flux act like it's night all the time?

Found it! Yes, in settings, there is a top slider for daylight you can move to limit maximum brightness. This is definitely way cool. Tnx again!
