Windows 7: Cannot save Description nor Notes for pinned shortcut

21 Sep 2013   #1

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
