Thanks.

Why not just put the vbs on the desktop instead of having shortcuts to it etc? It works like that

Sure, that will work. I don't like having programs on my Desktop. I always keep all programs in a folder on a different drive or partition then place a link to the program (vbs in this case) on the Desktop. Just the way I like to do things.

First you would have to learn Visual Basic. You could do that by learning how to do exactly as you describe.
