      Its possible OP (albent) might have wanted to create a file shortcut (.lnk file) using clip programming ...
      In Clip Help search for Shortcut and see: Windows Registry and Shortcuts specifically ^!MakeShortcut

      The above is relevant if you need to create shortcuts to a (large?) number of different files at the same time.

      Note: some years ago (2007) after switching computers and moving old stuff to the new one I had to "rebase" a humongous number of shortcuts (.lnk files) ... they all pointed to C:\myProgramFiles\\<program name>\... and I wanted to change them to new location D:\Program Files\<program name>\... (I had wanted to keep stuff out of standard C:\Program Files so I could easily tell what I installed vs stuff that was forced to the normal location but didn't have a second disk drive on the first (4GB!) hard drive.

      If this happens to be what you need it can't easily be done in Clip programming but I eventually found a command line program (whose name escapes me at the moment) but if you google [modify .lnk  windows file -keyboard] it should be in one of the first few hits (or ask again  ... later: it was Shortcut.exe still available towards the bottom of http://www.optimumx.com/downloads.html.

      Note: some of the other hits on that search term in Clip Help refer to keyboard shortcuts and the shortcuts.txt file - they aren't relevant for this topic.

      OPEN ALL .fvr files in a folder

      Or do mean a Desktop shortcut?
      Right click File or folder, left click "Create Shortcut". Then cut and paste the new shortcut to where you want it.
