    A shortcut to the shortcut wizard


    Hi y'all !

    I think we all know how to create a shortcut ?
    (Right click > New > Shortcut > Create Shortcut (wizard)

    But is there anyone out there who knows how to create a desktop shortcut to the Create shortcut (wizard) ?

    Amongst all the wonderful pages on this site about Shell cmds, CLSIDs etc, surely there must be someone somewhere who can help ?

    PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks


    :)

  3. Install wizard will not place a shortcut to a web site I have downloaded on my desktop.

    Hi Shirley,

    To assist you better, answer the below questions

    • Does this issue persist in different browser?
    • Which application installation wizard are you trying to download?
    I would like to inform you that, if you are asked to save and run during download it will not save website, it will just download application installation wizard file. Also, it is the installation wizard that pops up that you get when you try to download
    any application, asking permission to save the file on the system.

    Hope the above information was helpful. If you need further assistance, we will be glad to assist you.

    A shortcut to the shortcut wizard

    I don't know how to, but I'll pitch in to maybe see if someone knows a command line for opening this window:

    Maybe it could have something similar to this in the URL string: "ms-settings:"?

    I don't know either but you could create a VBS file to put on your desktop that would do the same job.

    ShortcutCreator[lnk].vbs

    Code: set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") strShortcutPathName = InputBox("Enter the full path and name of the shortcut [excluding its file extension]") set TheLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strShortcutPathName & ".lnk") strTargetPathName = InputBox("Enter the full path and name of the shortcut's target") TheLink.TargetPath = WSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(strTargetPathName) TheLink.Save[/quote]
    Where you see lnk, you could change that to url to make a url shortcut creator instead.

    Or you could create a VBS file to put on your desktop that would do the same job and that could create either lnk or url shortcuts as you see fit on each use.

    ShortcutCreator.vbs

    Code: set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") ShortcutType = MsgBox("Do you want to create a link to a file or folder [an lnk file]? If you want to create an internet link [a url file] select No.",3,"Select which type of link you want") If ShortcutType = 2 Then WScript.Quit If ShortcutType = 6 Then strShortcutExt = ".lnk" If ShortcutType = 7 Then strShortcutExt = ".url" strShortcutPathName = InputBox("Enter the full path and name of the shortcut [excluding its file extension]") If strShortcutPathName = "" Then WScript.Quit set TheLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strShortcutPathName & strShortcutExt) strTargetPathName = InputBox("Enter the full path and name of the shortcut's target") If strTargetPathName = "" Then WScript.Quit TheLink.TargetPath = WSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(strTargetPathName) TheLink.Save[/quote]

    A shortcut to the shortcut wizard

    Unfortunately there is no data I can find that gives me a filename, path or any other parameter that I can work with to find the shortcut wizard.
    "Create Shortcut" yields no results using various search tools and I am out of options.
    Hence the plea from the 'heart' !
