These shortcuts work on any Windows 11 or Windows 10 computer. Some of the apps, though, are available only on Windows Professional and higher editions, so their shortcuts don’t work if you have a Windows Home edition that doesn't include them. Also, we’d like to point out that, although we've received requests for shortcuts that can only be created with third-party tools (not found in Windows), we decided not to include such third-party tools in our Windows desktop shortcut collection. Our decision was based on the fact that the purpose of our collection is to use existing Windows 11 and Windows 10 tools and commands only. Still, if you want a shortcut not included in our collection, leave a comment, and we will try to add it to the package.
