I've been using Tor in client mode since V 0.0.9. I upgraded to each
next version. When I upgraded, I unchecked the "install shortcuts"
option in the installer box, since I already had a shortcut of the
previous version in my Start menu. 

I also tend to clean up my Start menu. Somewhere along the way I must
have removed the shortcut to torrc from the Start menu. I never needed
to access torrc in client mode anyway.

As a windows user, I would expect that the configuration could be
changed in a Configuration menu that can be opened from within the
application. This would be the ideal situation. However, I know that Tor
doesn't have a GUI.
