Accidentally deleted .EXE file.

Well, I've been using Paint.Net for a while, and the other day, I was cleaning off my desktop, and I accidentally deleted the PDN icon. I didn't think much of it at first, but, unbeknownst to me, that was the .EXE file for it.

Is there any way I can just download the executable file, without downloading the rest?

Any help is apreciated.

(Not sure if this is in the correct forum.)

The desktop shortcut is not the EXE. It's a shortcut or link to it. (If you dig deep, you'll find that shortcuts actually have the .LNK extension).

If it happens again or something, you can just right click on the desktop, click New -> Shortcut and it will ask you to find the file to link to. Usually Paint.NET's is in C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\PaintDotNet.exe

No harm done, though. Paint.NET is a small program, so the download and install are pretty quick.
