Windows 7: Pin a network mapped shorcut..

26 Sep 2009   #21

windows7 7600 x86

alvoryx - 1st like to say welcome to forum. This script or code is very cool. I have a question however. I am trying to use it for a network folder I use all the time

Will it or should it work like so - Z:\N FOLDER\

or is it only good for launching actual programs, as you can see my expertise is minimal at best. Thanks and rep

I just pinned the folder to my quicklaunch took 5 seconds - a bit easier.

One word of caution, not for quick launch, but when people create a custom new taksbar.

Deleting a folder or file within the folder you linked to the bar will actually delete it for real.
So if you link it to a music folder with subfolders containing mp3's, deleting one of the subfolders on the bar, will delete the folder.
And when it's a network folder, there is no undo.

The only way to get rid of a custom bar is to uncheck it.

Hope this will save some future grief.

I keep coming back to - use the OS within the design parameters of the OS.

It is wholly appropriate that the OP referenced \foo\bar.
