XAMPP Control Panel not appearing in start menu

Postby knot22 » 29. May 2019 12:58

I just installed XAMPP 7.3.5 on a Windows 10 machine. The XAMPP Control Panel is not showing up in the start menu though. An older installation of XAMPP on a Windows 7 machine displays the XAMPP Control Panel in the start menu, as shown by the attached screenshot. How do I get XAMPP Control Panel to show up in the start menu in Windows 10?

Hi knot22, I just upgraded to version 7.3.6 and I'm having the same problem :? I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer now.

Goto your XAMPP installation folder.
At the bottom find xampp-control.exe file.
Right click on that file and select "Pin To Start"

Hi Guys,

I trust that this issue is still open as I am experiencing the same behavior, Windows 10 -1909, XAMPP 7.3.11.

xampp-control.exe panel is not listed in start menu. Right-Click has option to pin to start but nothing happens.
