I've just installed Vivado 2018.3.It doesn't come up as an app on my computer and there is no shortcut on my desktop even though I remember checking that option for a shortcut. Could someone please help. What do I need to run to get Vivado recognized as an app on my computer?

to add shortcuts to the Start menu, run the networkShortcutSetup.exe executable.
This file is found under the .xinstall\Vivado_<version>\bin directory.
(For example C:\Xilinx\.xinstall\Vivado_2018.3\bin\NetworkShortcutSetup.exe.
For further details on this and more useful information, please see (UG973) (v 2018.3).

And then reinstall your Vivado 2018.3.
