outlook 2010

hello,
I would like to make a shortcut to a public folder in outlook 2010 on my windows 7 desktop. I created this folder as a calendar item in outlook 2010, and I am the owner.
I went to the folder in outlook, in public folders, and right clicked the folder I created, then went to the properties and copied the location information. Then I created a  new shortcut and pasted the location info in quotes because of the spaces in the name of the shortcut. It looks something like this
"\\Public Folders - Jeffrey.Beall@email.org\All Public Folders\*Health Corporate\Information Services\IS Calendar Folder"
however, the shortcut doesn't get created with an error that it can't find
\\Pubilc
any ideas on how to create a shortcut to a public calendar folder?

thank you so much for the answers, although now I'm in a quandary. Frosty555, I appreciate the explanation to clarify what is happening. But Michael-Best, your solution will do just what I want, which is create a quick and easy way to open the calendar.
So I really would like to mark both answers with the best solution thing, but it doesn't let me.
