Can't find wine programme launcher after installation on Linux Mint

Click here to visit the WineHQ website

I recently installed Wine in Linux Mint

sudo apt-get install wine-stable


One thing I noticed after installation, I couldn't find the Wine programme launcher in the Linux Mint menu. I have have experienced this issue on other distributions, and usually do the following.

Step 1) The first thing to do is configure Wine. Open your terminal and enter the following the command.
winecfg


Step 2) If after running the winecfg command you still can't find the Wine programme launcher, install a programme. Right click on the .exe file and open with Wine, and install your programme.

Step 3) If you still can't find the Wine programme launcher, restart your machine.

Hopefully this will resolve the issue.
