Windows 7: Cannot save Description nor Notes for pinned shortcut

21 Sep 2013   #1

XP Pro (x86) | 7 HP (x86) & (x64) | 7 Pro (x64)
Cannot save Description nor Notes for pinned shortcut

I have created a shortcut, on a sub-menu of the Start-menu, to an URL
When I edit the shortcut properties (Description or Notes) and use "Apply" or "OK" button I get this "Apply Property Error"

Cannot save Description nor Notes for pinned shortcut-apply-property-error.jpg

I would like to display some info in the "Comment" field (normally available for file shortcuts)
When I hover over the URL-shortcut all the popup shows is the URL address

Would appreciate any help, thank you :)

Pinned program -> Shortcut?
Hey there, I used to have a shortcut of Firefox on my taskbar. It was just the icon of Firefox and when I clicked on it, a NEW program tab would open in the taskbar. Just like when you, for example, open a folder, a new program tab opens in the taskbar. The nice thing was, this shortcut in the...
