Where can I get "Send to desktop as shortcut" from?

Right-click file > in context menu go to Send to... > click Send To Desktop As Shortcut, and voila! a shortcut was made on the desktop. I imagined it was from Send To Toys, but it wasn't, and then I simply cannot remember from where I got it. Do 'you' know where I can get this small but very useful feature for my Windows 7, please?

Hey Curt!

Per Microsoft:
Quote

1.     Click Start , type the following path and press Enter :

C:\Users\default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo


2.     Copy the file Desktop (create shortcut) from the Default user folder and place a copy in your user profile SendTo folder.

3.     The SendTo folder of your user profile can be accessed by typing shell:sendto in the Start-search box.
