Perhaps you were looking at a shortcut or had you options so it
did not display .exe extensions. (I display all files types and
never checked if that is possible though.) If you tried to copy
a shortcut over it would make sense that it did not work for you.

To add a shortcut to your Start menu go to Windows Explorer and
find your NotePro.exe file. Right click over it and choose Copy
(Ctrl+C, or use the Copy Tool on the Explorer Toolbar if you have
Go to C:\Windows\Start Menu\ and double click on the folder so it
opens in the large right hand window. Right click in that window
and choose "Paste Shortcut." That will put "NoteTab" on the main
menu when you click the start button. You can edit the shortcut
name in the Start menu folder to whatever you want.
If you do not want NoteTab on your main menu, but in the Programs
menu then do the above in the Program folder instead.
If you would like NoteTab to run when you startup your computer
after you make the shortcut above continue spreading the folders

Right click in that folder and "Paste Shortcut" again provided
you still have NoteTab 0n the clipboard.
Chances are you will see other apps in there as well and it might

that keeps starting." :)
You can use the above with any app and make a shortcut in any
folder to start a program or open a file, etc. the deasktop as
well. If you right click over the shortcut and choose
"Properties/Shortcut" you can change the icon displayed.
