Have you ever wondered how those third party tweaking programs allow you to add custom shortcuts to the Computer dialog? It’s actually really easy.
Is anyone else having a problem with the wizard not coming up so I can add a shortcut?
Checked this out - Mine works on Win7 but did not see "NEW ITEM" button so I right clicked the blank area and did the usual shortcut naming and TADA !!!
I just ran the command in the Run box, and when the Network folder opened, I just right clicked and dragged whatever icons I wanted into the folder, and picked 'Create shortcut here.'
I had opened another explorer window, so it was quick to just open the folders to the programs and folders I wanted, drag 'n' dropped them, and went to the next.
Really great tip, though. Thanks!
Thanks buddy! Awesome Thumbs up!
Like software icons, you can also add any FOLDER by following this method and indeed It's really a nice trick. More Details
So how does Apple's PhotoStream get there and how do I remove it?
