          An uninstall / re-install would certainly do the trick, but you could also probably re-create these shortcuts manually if you know what the "Target" string should be and you are comfortable creating Windows Shortcuts by hand. If you aren't just uninstall / reinstall.


          For example, the "Configure Tableau Server" shortcut points to a tool called "Configure.exe":


          "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\bin\tabconfig.exe"


          "Start Tableau" sends a command to "Tabadmin":


          "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\bin\tabadmin.exe" start


          "Stop Tableau" sends a different command:


          "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\bin\tabadmin.exe" stop


          ..and so on.


          All of these shortcuts use the following "Start In":


          "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\bin"
