If you’re using Windows 10, or thinking about upgrading to Windows 10, you can expect to continue using ProShow just as you always have.

With the release of Windows 10, many of you are probably wondering what changes with ProShow 7. In fact, Windows 10 will run ProShow versions 7 and later without any compatibility issues. Any program that worked in Windows 7 or 8 before upgrading, should work fine in Windows 10 in most cases. Besides the visual changes of Windows 10, you shouldn’t experience any differences when using ProShow in this environment.

Let’s take a look at the various ways to start ProShow in Windows 10!

Start ProShow from the Windows 10 Desktop

The Windows 10 desktop works exactly like it did in previous versions of Windows.  Simply find the ProShow shortcut on your desktop and double-left click the icon to launch the program. This is the most common method for opening your most frequently used programs.Desktop_ProShow shortcut

Start ProShow using the new Windows 10 Start menu

The new Windows 10 Start menu is a blend of the old with the new. It’s very familiar when compared to previous versions of Windows in regards to opening installed programs. Each program has a start menu folder and includes a shortcut to open the associated program.

To open ProShow, click on All Apps, locate the ProShow folder (Note: list is sorted alphabetically) and then click on the ProShow Shortcut to launch the program from the start menu.

Start ProShow from the taskbar in Windows 10

The Windows 10 taskbar has a couple of new goodies including search with Cortana. However, the general look and feel of the taskbar is relatively unchanged when compared to previous versions of windows.

To open ProShow, click the ProShow shortcut listed on the taskbar. If you don’t see the ProShow shortcut on the taskbar, you need to pin the program to the taskbar.

To pin a program to your taskbar, right-click the active program on your taskbar and select Pin this program to taskbar from the menu.
