- Oct 1, 2005Dave,
Icons, of course, are merely graphics that can be created with many
applications. However, one or more icons are embedded in exe's and one
is the default used when shortcuts are created.
The thing Michael is referring to is that there is a property of the
shortcut that can refer to a specific icon. Notetab's ^!MakeShortcut
command does not allow one to control this. Because of this, one is
limited to the default shortcut of the executable or file type referred
to. The only recourse is to script a complex clip to change the icon via
^!Keyboard commands, or do it manually (Right-click the shortcut,
left-click Properties, go to the Shortcut tab and click the Change Icon
button, then navigate to and select the desired icon, etc.).
The scripting utility AutoIt, as well as other tools, do allow one to
specify the desired icon, with their create shortcut command.
It is this functionality, plus some others related to shortcuts that I
and others would like to be able to do with the ^!MakeShortcut command.
