    Question Finding folder path via shortcut

    Well, as the title pretty much says i want to find the path of a folder, by searching through all shortcuts in the start menu.

    I know what the folder im looking for is called.

    If anyone have a suggestion for a easier way to find the folder im looking for, then im open for suggestions, i just thought that would be the easiest way.

    Ive tried a **** lot with "incomplete paths" for the folder, but it seems to be impossible, atleast for me, to make that work.

    Thanks for your help, everybody!

    Look into the Windows Scripting Host's IWshRuntimeLibrary.IWshShortcut_Class methods.
