I am trying to add a shortcut in the start menu that links only to files, or a folder. I am having trouble doing this since the shortcuts always seem to want to link to .exe files.

Is there a way to create shortcuts that don't launch programs, but simply opens up a folder?

Thanks for any help :) :) :)

In your shortcut, execute Explorer.exe followed by the path of the folder you wish to view.

you might also look up AddFolderIcon in the help index (and on the forums for help with it), it allows you to point to any file or folder.

Ok, next question:



I noticed there is an option to add a new folder which is basically what I was trying to accomplish, however I would like to use my own icon instead of the normal folder icon?

Is there a way to add an icon if you are only using the new folder option?


Thanks again!
