Zwift shortcut question

I downloaded the trial and went for a test ride.  A couple of days later, I am trying to sign back in and clicked the shortcut on my desktop, since I did not see any shortcut in my Start Menu (Windows).  Once I clicked the desktop shortcut, I was prompted to sign in, and now it’s downloading for 14 minutes again.  Does it do this download every time?  I thought there was a local client installed the first time around, that would fire up a lot faster.

Hi Jeff - Zwift automatically downloads any available updates. If you leave it running in the system tray, it should download them as they become available saving you time on login.

Last night we released our Workout Editor which is what downloaded for you today. You can stay up to date on all the latest releases here
