Hello s7ven.



Yes, that's just the order of things; it's the program/app getting elevated so it can run.

Great tutorial but I have a question.
Is there a way to merge icon of this shortcut with icon of the program being run on taskbar (these are two different applications obviously sou their icons display separately)?
It's not a big deal but it's a bit annoying.
Thank you very much anyway.

Hello BlastFX, welcome to Seven Forums!



As there is a difference in the 2 icons, the first starts or activates the program and the second, an indication the program is active, I don't believe there's anything to do to make it happen; let's see if anyone has other input on this question.

That was an excellent addition to your tutorial. It's just a shame that I can't then put them all in a folder and remove the icons from the desktop by closing the folder. I don't suppose that has changed?
