Proper way to run emacs from desktop

I install Cygwin every couple of years and then use it continuously
without updates between those installations.  I installed it on a new
laptop today, and I'm trying to work through issues.

The current issue is running Emacs from the desktop.

I had a shortcut working for a long time that does the following:
C:\cygwin64\bin\run2.exe --display /usr/local/bin/emacs.xml

The "run2" application doesn't appear to exist.  I checked my notes,
and I can't tell whether I installed this from somewhere else the last
time I did this.

I tried changing "run2" to "run". This didn't fail.  It also didn't do anything.

What should I do here?
