Hi there, I have a HTC Touch Diamond 1 Mobile Phone, running Windows Mobile 6.1.

I would like to create a shortcut URL file, that I can launch ( i am using the new SPB Mobile Shell 3.0, where you can have shortcut's to files, or anything from your homepage ) gmail.com, that would launch straight into my Opera Web Browser.

Hope you can help, thanks in advance!

thanks, but that didn't work for me, as i don't have the option to set Opera as the default user in my Opera Browser 9.5 Build # 1476

i also don't have the following registry key on my HTC Diamond

HKCU/ControlPanel/Keybd/APP3_Path

How can i create the shortcut / URL file ??

Thanks so much for your assistance in helping !
