Windows 7: how can I display 300 desktop shortcuts?

how can I display 300 desktop shortcuts?

I have over 300 shortcuts I would like to display on my desktop.
No room.
I tried to figure out how I can page groups of 60 at a time.
Tried Sondle Virtual Desktop Assist Software but that just
switches between same desktop but session only open/close of availiable programs.

I need different shortcuts on different desktops.

Trying to figure out using webpages that I can switch.

I don't think you can display that many directly on the Desktop, but by creating a QuickAccess toolbar you can store quite a few shortcuts in there, and you can also create an additional Taskbar on the Desktop which could house quite a few more of those shortcuts.
