Hello Experts
I have a customer that we just upgraded form Office 2003 to 2010.
In 2003, we had a Shortcut on the Desktop pointing to the Company shared calendar called Master calendar.
Since upgrading, I have not been able to create a Shortcut for the Company Calendar that is located under Public Folders.
Does anyone know if there's a way to create the Shortcut on the Desktop or a script to launch the Calendar?

Thanks in advance

In Outlook 2010, you need to include your Exchange email address in the path:
outlook.exe /select "outlook:\\Public Folders - frank@slipstick.com\All Public Folders\folder\subfolder"
