I'm running Netscape 4.01 under Windows NT (and '95) and I have multiple User Profile's configured.  On the '95 Machine (One for Me, One for my SO) and on the NT machine (One for Work, One for Personal (ISP)).

   What I would like is the ability to create a shortcut/icon to launch Communicator with one of the User Profiles, bypassing the selection screen.  I know it's lazy, but it would be nice...


Thanks for your help

In shortcuts properties and in textbox labled "Target " at the end of the line add the following, separated by space from existing text:
-P"profile_name"
where P is capital, don't forget to put the name of profile in quotes.

If you don't know how to edit command line of shortcut here are the instructions:
Right-click mouse on the shortcut and choose "Properties", then select tab "Shortcut", go to textbox labled "Target"

Sincerely,
VMPN
