Im making a HTML file for my desktop background "active desktop"
I would like to make all links instead of having icons. The trouble im having is making a link for "My Computer, and My Network places. Those 2 places im not able to make a link for.
Sample
<a href="C:\Documents and Settings\rroberson\My Documents\Security">Security</a><br>
That is the code for my Security link. When i put my computer in it, it doesnt work, any ideas?

Nope, that does nothing. You have to place file:///C:\windows\explorer.exe C:\[...] (note the 3 (three) '/') and that will just call up the 'Security' folder in My Documents. To call for the My Computer, hmm, I don't know. I do know that explorer uses special identifiers for special 'folders' like My Computer, but I don't know what they are.

YEah, i guess that's the real question. I normally copy the path, but "My Computer" the path is alittle different....Any ideas

There is no My Computer exe.

Make the link do this:

<a href="My Computer">My Computer</a>

I dont think this would work, butif you find a way to call iexplore.exe then you would have to set the status bar to My Computer and it would be able to go to My Computer or should do.

It's not present anywhere. It's like a part of the explorer.exe file (just like you have different command-line options like copy/s), but I don't know how to access it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
