Comment (by busch1):

 hm, on Windows 10 there are problems if you want to use a different name
 for the icon (e.g. "QGIS LTR"). When starting QGIS the "missing" icon
 "QGIS 3" is created automatically anyway. However, the link then targets
 the QGIS' exe file. But if you work with a customized setup and point the
 shortcut e.g. to a special batch file to start QGIS, the use of the icon
 "QGIS 3" leads to a possibly completely new default profile. This is not
 recommended. Therefore I think it's good that the icon is no longer
 created by default.
