We added a "loop" function to the client on bug 3633 to make it easier to deploy the client on dedicated ThinLinc terminals. As part of this we also started adding a start menu shortcut to launch the client in this mode.
However we've had several reports that users are getting confused by this function and accidentally starting the loop version rather than the normal one. They are then stuck with a client that they cannot easily get rid of.
We should consider not adding this shortcut by default as it is a niche feature that is not relevant for the vast majority of Windows users. A dedicated terminal most likely has a lot of other customisation, so having a custom launcher for the ThinLinc client shouldn't be a lot of extra work.
The previous commits were for bug 7245.

This seems to be worse on Windows 11 where the loop version is suggested after install. See attached screenshot.
