how to create a .LNK file using text editor?

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
what is the simple script or path I enter into a text editor such as UltraEdit, then save into Windows desktop folder as a .LNK  file, to create a shortcut to an application or to a folder?  - I've done it in the past by viewing the script inside .LNK  files on my HD and doing a mod but now Windows won't let my editor open any desktop shortcuts to study the script within.
