Windows 7: HOW TO: change path in batch mode

15 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows XP Pro SP3
HOW TO: change path in batch mode

I have a couple of hundred icons in my games directory and the shortcut points to "\\server\games\games_source\" I want to change all of them at once to "\\server\games (server)\games_source\", I have the addition " (server)" on the clipboard so all I have to do is edit the properties of each icon and do a paste at the "target" and "start in" directories but it is taking forever to do them all, is there a way of doing it in a batch mode or setting up a batch command file or a script to do this?..thanks in advance for the help....

PS: Sorry if this is in the wrong forum

By the way this is in Windows 7 Ultimate, but it should be the same in Win XP also
