  1. _FileGetShortcutEx This UDF will return shortcut (.LNK) file information for more advanced shortcuts that AutoIt's built-in FileGetShortcut() chokes on.

This is only one level deep at the moment, so it will only read the base Folder GUID (For example: shortcuts to 'My Computer', 'Recycle Bin' return fine) UNC Shortcuts ("PCNAME"). This is also only one level deep currently, so "PCNAMEF

  7. Hello all! I was in read-only until today, started to use Autoit 3 weeks ago. It can really make things easy, I really love it I have some script now that works and make our job effective, but I have problems with the latest. It works if I open the script's folder and run the exe directly. If I use the shortcut that I created on the desktop, it's not working properly. Activates the window, but not opening/exporting my files, just opens the last msgbox. I use ftp becouse the PC and the destination PC is not on the same network. Here's the script: #Region ;**** Directives cre

  11. Internet Shortcut Sanitizer With the newest Firefox and IE browsers, there's a bit of an issue with Internet Shortcuts created, which have been traditionally saved in a .URL file on Windows (an INI-structured file). Firefox now adds Icon information to the file which points it at a location within %localappdata%MozillaProfiles. This to me is annoying and unnecessary. While it may reflect the favicon of a website, its got a few problems: When the cache is cleared or the bookmark is moved to another computer or put on a fresh install, that icon isn't there anymore. These shortcuts contai

(I can't spam ALT + Right) Doesn't work when im inside a game. This is actually
