Windows 7 desktop shortcuts have stopped working
Posted on 2014-04-02
I have some folders on my desktop that contain some shortcuts that link to remote urls.
These were working but suddenly they no longer place the url in the address bar of the browser page that opens.
I am using windows 7 Home premium along with Firefox as the default.
If I check the properties of the short cut, the url is included correctly in the URL box.
Full permissions are granted and I can see all correct if I go to
C:/users/username/desktop/ and right click on any shortcut.
I tried creating a new shortcut to test but that did not work either.
Has anyone any ideas how to get the shortcuts working again please?
