Shortcuts contain hidden UNC mappings???
Posted on 1998-07-21
I have an infrastructure that requires me to copy shortcuts around from one machine to another, and of course the shortcut references paths that those machines have in common. However, when I send the .lnk file (the shortcut) to a text editor, the name of the original machine is included in the file. Is there a way to copy/create shortcuts that leaves this out? Here is an example of what a shortcut looks like in a text editor: \\YKTTSCS01\C$ is a machine name that is not referenced ANYWHERE when viewing properties of the shortcut itself. Please help!
