No desktop shortcut or listing on start menu

Did something go wrong with my install or are there no shortcuts to the application created? I had to go digging in the program files folders to locate and start pia_manager.exe.

If shortcuts aren't created then it'd probably be a good thing to actually create them.


  • There should be an icon in the system tray. It might be hidden. You may have to configure it to show all the time. This would be in the system tray configuration for notifications.
  • Hi @Skrybe,

    In order to ensure the icon displays all of the time on Windows, you'll need to do the following:

    1. On your desktop, right-click on the Taskbar, and go to "Properties"
    2. On the Taskbar tab, under the Notification Area heading, click "Customize"
    3. Locate our app icon from the list, and select "Always Show" from its drop menu
    4. Click OK to apply the changes.

    It should be smooth sailing from there! Please let me know if you have any more questions.
