Change shortcuts using FileGetShortcut / FileCreateShortcut

2 posts in this topic

Hi everybody,

I just create a script that modifies my shortcuts because our directory structure has changed.

I use FileGetShortcut ro read and FileCreateShortcut to write the shortcut (FileCreateShortcut overwrites existing shortcuts with the same path\name).

I can set every property but hotkey which isn't returned by FileGetShortcut.

Does anyone know how I can retrieve the hotkey of a shortcut?

Thanks in advance

If the shortcut exists you can retrieve it:

Read

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$strTargetPath = "C:\hello.lnk"

$ShellObj=ObjCreate("WScript.Shell")

$objShortcut = $ShellObj.CreateShortCut($strTargetPath)

$hotkey = $objShortcut.Hotkey

ConsoleWrite($hotkey)

Write

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$strTargetPath = "C:\hello.lnk"

$hotkey = "Alt+Ctrl+F"

$ShellObj=ObjCreate("WScript.Shell")

$objShortcut = $ShellObj.CreateShortCut($strTargetPath)

$objShortcut.Hotkey = $hotkey

$objShortcut.Save

ConsoleWrite($hotkey)
