how to create shortcut on desktop of windows 7 pro 64bit from a file on windows 2003 server
Posted on 2010-09-09
I have a windows 7 pro 64bit pc and a windows 2003 server 32bit standard edition. I have mapped a drive on my windows 7 machine to a folder on the windows 2003 server. There an application file that I am trying to create a shortcut from to my desktop. The problem i am having is every time i try to create a short cut to desktop i get an error. "Windows cannot create shortcut to desktop. Disk might be full. This computer has 500 gigs and only 20 gigs have been used. And I have full admin rights to all directories on this pc. And whats even more odd is i can copy and paste the entire file from that directory to my desktop but i can't create a short cut. and i can create shortcuts for other files in that directory no problem to my desktop just this one file i can't. I get this disk space error. Any idea what this might be. I have disabled windows defender just in case.
