Be sure the program is not running at the time.
This will bring up the full context menu.
This is another good way if you still have the shortcut in the taskbar. Once you have the context menu, click on Properties and you get the Picture 2 from my post.

Try using the regedit function. Open regedit and search for the program's name. For example, if I want to see exactly where the Roxio label creator resides on my machine I'd do this:

regedit > type in Roxio > find next

I know it's on my C: drive so I'd use F3 (find next) until I locate it. On my machine it eventually shows:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\Label Creator\CDLabel.exe/ReallyCreateANewDoc

Warning: Make sure you know how to use the regedit function and don't accidentally delete anything. You'e just using regedit as a search tool.

Deskpins is a little program that you find on the internet. It is a little gadget for which you may have no use.
