Windows 7: Spider Solitaire Shortcut

Spider Solitaire Shortcut

Hi all,

I hope this is the right place for this post - It looked like the least wrong

I want to do something that I thought was going to take me two seconds - Create a shortcut to Spider Solitaire.

In trying to find out how to do it I've come across these 'magic' system shortcuts that look like this:

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /E,::{ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83b1-96b02CFE0D52}

(This one is a shortcut to the games 'folder').

And this one - Which is a shortcut to the 'God' mode:
explorer shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

I'm now assuming that if I can find the right code to give to explorer, I can get a link to the Spider Solitaire game itself.

Is this a completely daft assumption?

If it's not - Can anyone tell what the correct code is? Or better yet point me to a list of codes which includes the rest of the games as well?

If I'm way off track in getting this done - Can someone tell me how to do it please?

In case you're wondering - I'm trying to add a shortcut to the game on ObjectDock.

Thanks in advance,

Hope this helps,

Many thanks Brink

Many thanks Shawn - Just couldn't find the executables from the icons in the games folder.

Also, a while after I posted the question I found I could just drag the game icon over the dock to create the docklet...
(I'd tried it before with no success - must have misplaced the drop.)

I also messed up by searching for a file with 'spider' in its name - in the Windows folder

Spider Solitaire goes too fast
Playing Spider Solitaire recently I found that the game had speeded up. The deals were displayed instantaneously, which makes it easy to deal twice without realising it. The only change I remember is that I had installed Java VM for a game that required it. That has now been uninstalled, although...
