This article builds on the code detailed in Accessing the Special Folder paths

By utilising the class module from that article it is possible to create internet shortcuts and any other kind of file in the specified folders.

The example code in this download shows how to create an internet short-cut file in either the users favourites folder, or their desktop folder.

An internet shortcut file is basically a text file with an ini-file structure. An example internet shortcut file could be :

Filename=CodeLibrary Homepage.url

[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.eastwood60.freeserve.co.uk
