As long as the desktop shortcut to Backup and Restore is not deleted, the shortcut/icon will remain as a pinned item on the Start
- if one does not wish the item on the Desktop (many don't), another option would be to move the 'Control Panel created Desktop
shortcut for Backup and Restore' to a location (folder) on the All Programs menu (e.g. System Tools), then drag it to the Orb (to
add to the Start Menu)
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools
Note: A shortcut created for Backup and Restore (a Control Panel item) will not have the rt click (Pin to Task Bar and Start Menu
On the other hand <g> one could make it a whole lot easier by just opening the item on the All Programs Menu
Orb > All Programs > Maintenance > Backup and Restore
....and drag it to the Orb to Pin it to the Start Menu

Thanks for the reply, but am a bit confused. When I go to Control
Panel/Backup & Restore, I do not see any option to create a shortcut,
just options to run the backup or restore files, but nothing to allow
me to create a shortcut. What am I missing?
If you want a shortcut to the Backup and Restore function:
Control Panel(iconview) > Right-click backup and Restore icon > Create shortcut.
This will put the shortcut onto your Desktop.
Select the shortcut and drag it over the Start orb to pin it to the start menu.
