  1. File Path to Apps, Shortcut, Macro, Custom Keys


    So, here I am, after 20+ years of using Windows, incapable to figure out where Skype is on my computer to see the path to a .exe file.
    I may be old fashion, buy I am not inept. The app store trend is throwing a curved one at me and I am loosing my patience.
    I never ever had to go on a forum to ask for help, I've always found solutions, help, tutorials, but not for this one. I really hope there's some easy solution that I missed.

    So, I need to find the path to an "app" or another.
    Calculator would be one, Skype another, Snip and Sketch also.
    I want to add them to custom buttons on my Elgato keyboard.

    Once upon a time there was an easy way to find where the program with a shortcut on your desktop resides.
    Check the properties on a shortcut ! Still works for some programs.
    Now Windows has apps and ... I don't know why are they so special that I can't see a path, something tangible.

    So , is there a way to easily find how to trigger these apps without jumping through hoops ?
    What is that garbage ? See screen captures below

    Thank you for your help, suggestions and patience.

  2. Creating Shortcuts with Batch File

    Threw a program together quick for you. It is attached with source in the other. Use it in place of your VBScript.

    It supports:
    CreateShortcut [save shortcut] [path to run]
    CreateShortcut [save shortcut] [path to run] [icon index]
    CreateShortcut [save shortcut] [path to run] [icon file]
    CreateShortcut [save shortcut] [path to run] [icon file] [icon index]

    If "icon index" is missing, it assumes 0. If "icon file" is missing it assumes "path to run." It doesn't presently support arguments to be added to the shortcut nor modifying the working directory (always assumes same directory as "path to run").

    Requires .NET Framework 4.0 to run. Will run natively on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.

    Creating macros

    To use the included feature in windows, create your macro and save it to be used later, (this should be listed in the macro software), next create a standard shortcut to work with the saved macro - Right click on desktop and new then shortcut, enter the code to run the macro in the Target box, and then click on the Shortcut Key box and press the CTRL and or Alt, and or Shift and a Letter key together to create an entry which will be assigned to start the macro when pressed- Repeat this for other macros as needed
