InternetShortcutCreator v1.0.1.5

Recommended Posts

InternetShortcutCreator v1.0.1.5

On your desktop, your Internet Shortcuts  have all the same default icon ? 

it's a pity !  :ermm: 

 

With InternetShortcutCreator you can Create an Internet Shortcut with the website's favicon ! :thumbsup:

(if there is one and if it can be found and downloaded)

Now when your browser is in fullscreen, no need to resize it for be able to drag the favicon :king:

(who is at left of the url bar) for create a shortcut on your desktop.

So, how it works :

When Mouse is over Url Bar, Cursor becomes a blue hand.

At this moment Click Middle mouse button (or F10 for touchpad user) for start.

While script is working to create shortcut, Cursor become a red hand ( when it's red, you need to wait for create an other shortcut)

Cursor is reset to default when Mouse is not over Url Bar.

Attention : control or text can only be found for IE or Chromium familly (Chromium, Chrome, SrWare Iron, Comodo Dragon, Yandex.Browser, Baidu Spark Browser).

So for other browsers you need to copy the url.

No externals files needed, they are already in script.

>WinAPIEx.au3 and >WinHTTP.au3 needed.

A little tool who can help you and permit your desktop to be more nice!  :)

Hahaha, another thing for my to clean!  I suppose its a neat idea for certain people, although the shortcut has identifiable user logon info inside of it.  I believe there was a technique used in older Internet Explorer versions where the icon itself was embedded within the .URL file itself, perhaps as a hex string?  I can't remember how it was done specifically, but it was dropped later.

By the way - cleaning out the temp folder is something I do regularly. Perhaps you should think of putting the icons in a location less likely to be deleted from system cleaner software?

One more thing - running the program, then launching IE10 while its running, crashes your program (Win 7 x64).

Hi Ascend4nt

When you say the shortcut has identifiable user logon info inside of it, all what i see it's the username !

For the icons dir which location do you suggest ?, home drive ?

I can not believe ie is your default browser...

For ie crash i only try with ie7,8,9.

Edit : Did you get an error message ?

      Is this possible with autoit?
      What I want to do:
      Create a Desctop windows shortcut to run an executable application created with autoit, which shortcut would have some parameters which will send as a variable to the aplicagion .
      For example:
      Create an app : ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe
      Run this with a shortcut which has:  "C:/ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe" -option1
      What I want to do is the ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe take the option1 and do something like this: Shellexecute("c:\myfolder\option1.exe")
      Can I do that?
      Thanks,

      hi guys, how are you ??  fine? good...
      Here is a little question: is it possible to know whish shortcut has been used to launch my autoit app ?
      i'm quite sure that there's nothing to do with autoit, but mostly windows ...
       
      My context: i have an app accessed from the network by my user.
      In my app i use FileCreateShortcut to point to \\myfileserver\myapp.exe
      Soon, in october, they are going to change my fileserver, so my app will be on \myNEWfileserver\myapp.exe
      So in my code, i just rewrite my shortcut on the desktop's user. Everything works fine.
      BUT..some users have several shortcut for my app (they just manually create another shortcut which i don't know the name).
      So maybe they don't use my shortcut but their own ...
      => i know I could list all file on desktop, and for all the .lnk i check if destination is myapp.exe and modify the path but do you see another way ?
       
      thanks
      have fun !

      I am trying to launch the shortcut through autoit, but I am getting below error.
      [Window Title] C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk" [Content] Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk"'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. [OK] Launching the target directly is not feasible as it is dynamic.
      I tried.
      $r = ShellExecute(@ComSpec & " /c " & "start """& @ProgramsCommonDir & "\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk""")
       
      and also Run and RUnwait

      I am trying to launch a shortcut.
      But I am getting a file not found error.
      Even I kept a condition to check the file exist and it is there but still I am getting the below error on run command.
      $release = "r10.0" $bit = "64" $erwinShortcut = @ProgramsCommonDir&"\erwin\erwin Data Modeler "& $release &" ("& $bit &"-bit)\erwin Data Modeler "& $release &" ("& $bit &"-bit).lnk" Run(@ComSpec & " /c """& $erwinShortcut &"""", @TempDir, @SW_HIDE) [Window Title] C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit)\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit).lnk [Content] C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit)\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit).lnk The specified path does not exist. Check the path, and then try again. [OK] Any suggestions?
      Even I tried surrounding with both double and single quotes for the path of lnk.
      And even changed the working directory to startmenu folder and also exe folder.
