Hi there, @chickengoats, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Very Happy

To start the game, you just need to navigate to Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Game\Bin and double click on TS4.exe. If you want to create another desktop icon, just right click TS4.exe, go to "Send to..." and choose "Desktop (create shortcut)". This will put an icon in the desktop once again.

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck!

Did you change install directory while you were installing Sims?
Type Sims 4 into your search bar in start menu, that's it if you're using Windows 7 or 8.1
If it's not there, then are you sure you deleted just your desktop shortcut?

Hello chickengoats,

The TS4.exe probably got deleted by your anti-virus program(s). Did you read the included instructions inside the Ultimate fix about adding folder locations to the "exclusions" ? Smile

how about in your recycle bin ? did you empty it ? if not you can recover it there.
or how about go to your C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Game\Bin 
like this: you can find the main game icon there.





Mod edit: moved to the right section.
