I've noticed that on some of the programs I have desktop shortcuts for, the "Target" box is grayed out and only has the name of the program, and the "Start in" box is empty. This applies to iTunes and Microsoft Outlook.

On other shortcuts I have, it has the detailed command line information in these two boxes.

My question is this: Is there any way to show the target and start in boxes with their detailed information on all shortcuts? Might be a little vague, so please ask if you don't understand.

yeah ive noticed that for ms office programs.
i don't think that you can change the shortcut's properties in that case but you can always make a new shortcut.

also, open the the shortcut in notepad.. you will see the path but i don't know if it will corrupt the shortcut file if you make a change and save it.

if you really wanted to, a HEX editor like ultra edit would probably do it.

Well what about this. Some of my shortcuts don't show up in the command prompt. Like if I go to my desktop and run the dir command, most of my shortcuts aren't there.

some are here C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu
some are here C:\Documents and Settings\"Your User Name"\Start Menu

both folders get combined and show up in the start menu

actually, your desktop integrates these 2 folders
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\"Your User Name"\Desktop
