George,

I can never get that to work. In your example to Tom for Notepad, you said 
to go to the Start menu, Programs, Accessories, and then down to notepad. So 
far, so good.

However neither the Applications key nor Alt+Enter will bring up a context 
menu to allow me to send it to my desktop as a shortcut.

I always have to go to:

Documents and Settings\<user name>\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\notepad 
and then I can use the Applications key.

How in heck did you get yours to work right from the Start menu?

Dave

tom,

i just made a shortcut for word pad on my desktop and it opened the word pad
app.

throw the one for word pad away on your desktop and then go to start
programs accesseries and arrow to wordpad and hit the apps key and arrow to
send to and right arrow and arrow to desktop as shortcut and hit enter and
it is there.
