How to keep a shortcut using a UNC to my local computer from chaning??
Posted on 2004-11-30
I'm trying to setup a shortcut to a local folder that is shared on the network. For reasons too long-winded to try to describe here, I need to have a shortcut to a UNC "stay" as shortcut to the UNC. Currently it always reverts back to the local path.
For example, the shortcut to \\computer\share becomes a shortcut to c:\share. For consistency with network users within a excel worksheet, this needs to be the same from all workstations including the host workstation.
Question: Is there a way for me to prevent Windows XP from changing my UNC shortcut to a local path shortcut?
