Hi Swarfega,

That's a good one for placing a shortcut of Libraries on the desktop instead.

Thank you for sharing this.

Hello w00t, and welcome to Seven Forums.

After you have downloaded and merged the reg file in step 2, did you right click on a empty space on the desktop and click on Refresh?

Hope this helps,
Shawn
