[texhax] how do I run Tex Live 2015 on my Windows 8.1 computer?

I competed the install process (as best I can determine).  For example, Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features gives me a means to “uninstall or change a program” and lists TeX Live 2015 as a program for which I can do an uninstall.

Yet, I have been unable to find a way to run TeX Live 2015.  For example, there is no shortcut on my desktop.  There is no ‘tile’ on my start screen.

(The start screen [details section] does tell me that I have a new app – Word-to-Latex.  I downloaded that earlier today.  It also automatically installed as a tab in ‘the ribbon’ in my version of Word.  I used word to create LaTEX output.)

But I do not see anything related to TeX Live on the start screen or the details section of the start screen.

What do I need to do to use the program?  Please give adequate detail (without jargon) – just a process I can follow easily.

And, if possible, please let me know how to get an icon for the program into the desktop’s task bar.
