    im trying to put a link to photoshop 6 on my active desktop. do you have to do it the same way as you would for adding solitaire?because i tried that and when i click the link nothing happens.

    in other words.. how would can i add a link to adobe photoshop on my desktop?

    this is what i have:
    "<a onClick="exec('photoshop.vbs'); return false;" href="java script:void(0)">adobe photoshop 6</a>"

    have you had made the shortcut link for it.. and placed it in the c:\windows folder... also beside it there should be a vbscript

    Dim oShell
    Set oShell 
    WScript.CreateObject ("") "photoshop_shortcut_name_here"
    Set oShell Nothing
    Then placed the scipt at the top of the HTML file you are using as the active desktop ?

    Did you remove the space between 'java' and 'script'?
