By default, mailto will only work with an installed program set as your default email client program.

You might see if this below may work for you though.

I haven't tested this below, but it looks promising.

Hello amirfengineer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like something has renamed the file extension of the Desktop (create shortcut) shortcut causing it to not work.

Renaming the file to remove .DeskLink off the end should help.

The ".DeskLink" is not suppose to be there.

What do you mean?

The file that i downloaded of this thread to restore desktop shortcut is a .DeskLink file too.

Please explain more.

The download from the tutorial doesn't have that. That's what you would see in the properties of the shortcut, but it should be like this below.

Are you using some sort of download manager, or have some 3rd party AV/security program that could be renaming the shortcut?
