NI MAX question for new Win 10 met/cal install

I'm in the intial phases of installing / upgrading Met/Cal 7.3 to 8.3 on a new Windows 10 computer. My old computer (Win 7) has 2 of the NI GPIB-USB-HS interfaces.

Yesterday I went to the NI website and selected a driver appropriate for the IEEE-488 interface and computer O/S (Win 10). I downloaded a 600 MB file (NI4882_1550f0.exe) and installed.

I have not connected one of the USB interfaces yet, but I don't see the NI MAX app anywhere (yet).  Did I miss something or will NI MAX pop-up once an interface is connected?

Don't laugh - in the Windows 10 start menu, under All Apps, NOT in the National Instruments folder, but rather below the News small tile as NI MAX.

I'll openly admit that even in Windows XP and 7, I've had trouble finding it at the top of the programs list instead of tin the NI directory, so no judgement here, haha. Glad you found it.
