Add Shortcuts to My Computer in Windows

8:05 PM

Have you ever wondered how those third party tweaking programs allow you to add custom shortcuts to the Computer dialog? It’s actually really easy.

Note: this should work in at least Windows 7 and Windows 8, but it might work in Vista. Maybe.

How to Add Shortcuts to the Computer Dialog in Windows
  • Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up and run box, then type the following.
%appdata%\microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts
  • Then hit enter.
  • That should have opened the location where Microsoft looks for any additional shortcuts to display in the Computer dialog. So all we need to do is create a new shortcut to whatever we want to be displayed. This can be a file, a folder, or even a program.
  • When the Create Shortcut wizard opens, simply type in the location of the item you wish to create a shortcut to and click next.
  • Then give your shortcut a suitable name and click finish.
  • Voila! That is really all there is to it.
Note: If this Tutorial and News worked for you (and it should work), please leave a comment below. Thanks.
