This trick will allow you to edit shortcut properties in Windows.
- Add Windows Script Host Object Model reference under the COM tab. To do that, right click on References in Solution Explorer and then Add Reference.
- Insert the using statement:
- Here is the sample code
WshShell shell = new WshShell();
IWshShortcut link = (IWshShortcut)shell.CreateShortcut(filename);
Now you can set and get various shortcut properties via methods in the link object. Be sure to call the
Save() to save changes you made.
