I want to create a shortcut on the Start menu, to "Fonts" folder

The path in Control Panel to Fonts folder failed as a shortcut ...
ie, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Fonts

Would appreciate any help -- thank you

A shortcut with a Control Panel path as the target will never work. Use "C:\Windows\Fonts" as the target instead.
