Cannot find Citra on my computer

I cannot find Citra on my computer. I use Citra Nightly to play pokemon, but I can’t find it to open the app anywhere on my computer. I can’t search for it, I can’t find it on desktop, it isn’t anywhere. It was always like this, but before I would just launch it from “Recently added” but it isn’t there anymore. It is still on my computer, because I still have the option to uninstall it, but I can’t find it anywhere else.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor

Where have you tried searching for it?

Using the magnifying glass on the bottom left of my computer

Could you try hitting Windows + R and typing in %appdata%/Citra into it?

Yes, it came up with a folder containing the following folders


Try going up to the AppData folder, then look for nightly-mingw in the Local folder

Ok, I found it do i just click on Citra.exe now?

citra-qt.exe, and you may want to pin it to taskbar or make a shortcut on your desktop

Alright, thank you for the help
