Comment (by thosch):


 I can confirm, that running OSGeo4W installer version 2.579 for a local
 install of only -P qgis-ltr-full with --no-shortcuts or/and --no-startmenu
 nevertheless creates shortcuts in the default start menu folder OSGeo4W
 (or --menu-name, if given).

 --no-desktop on the other hand indeed disables the creation of desktop

 The start menu shortcuts I get are:

 C:\geoservice\OSGeo4W\bin\grass78.bat --gui  GRASS GIS 7.8.7
 C:\geoservice\OSGeo4W\OSGeo4W.bat  OSGeo4W Shell
 C:\geoservice\OSGeo4W\bin\qgis-ltr-bin.exe  QGIS Desktop 3.22.5
 C:\geoservice\OSGeo4W\bin\bgspawn.exe "C:\GEOSER~1\OSGeo4W\bin\qgis-ltr-
 designer.bat"  Qt Designer with QGIS 3.22.5 custom widgets
 "C:\geoservice\OSGeo4W\bin\saga_gui.bat"  SAGA GIS 7.8.2
 "C:\geoservice\OSGeo4W\bin\setup.bat"  Setup

 N.B. Disableing the (QGIS) shortcut is wanted, because I need to start
 QGIS using qgis-ltr.bat, which I edited to adapt to our company SDI
