In Windows it is convenient to open the start menu and type the first few
characters of the application you want to run, e.g. "oct" if you want to run
Octave. This "filters" the links in the start menu and shows a list of links
that match these letters.
If there are several different versions of Octave installed on the same
computer, there is no easy way to differentiate which link would open which

It would be helpful if the version was included in the link name, i.e. "Octave
4.2.1 (GUI)" instead of "Octave (GUI)" and similarly for the CLI.
