I'm not exactly sure which program your refering to, but if it's one such as MS Paint or another that's in your start menu. Just open the start menu & rightclick on the program you want a shortcut for & select properties.

This will show you the Target, here's MS Paints target location "%SystemRoot%\system32\mspaint.exe", now you can rightclick the desktop & navigate to this location & create a shortcut.

There is an easier freeware program you can use to assign numerous programs to a single file type, then you only need rightclick a file & choose which program you want to use to open it.

NO, answer wrong for Windows 7 64-bit

the Start Menu properties do not show where Office's Picture Manager is located. I tried that first. It just says c:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows Start Menu/blah blah blah. Whereas Office Picture Manager is actually in the Program Files(x86) directory. The next answer below gave me the actual file name for which I was able to search and find.

Just the answer I needed.

I was trying to make Office Picture Manager the default image viewing application for my Brother multi-function laser printer/fax/flatbed scanner -- and I could not find it!

Out of the box Microsoft Paint is the default program the software designates (because Paint is on every Windows computer). But I wanted Office Picture Manager for easier cropping and resizing, as well as automatic color correction. Plus I changed the default file format to JPG instead of BMP.
