    Here's a quick question for everyone :)

    Does anyone know the root extension in the registry for the windows desktop? As I tend to get alot of icons there, and frequently farm them to specific shortcut subfolder - I thought it might be easier to make a command so that any shortcut that is selected can be click moved to the C:\QA dir.

    Good article, MS, but I'm trying to find the Desktop key so I can add a shell\command\ to the context menu.

    Obviously the Desktop is a folder therefore it doesn't have a spot in the registry for what you are looking to do.

    You could, however, modify the extension for LNK and add your command there.
