BMW - I don't think that's his problem :)

I believe blagud is saying that two shortcuts appear instead of one.

Blagud - do a search for Desktop folders and if the shortcut appears in more than one folder then try to delete from the other(s) - I believe that will help. It's worth a try.

Allan you might be right there.... But that tweak in the software
tweak xp pro prevents that occuring if checked.

Get the reg men on this one.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\ Desktop

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Desktop

These two must be different

This also happens to but not all the time. When I make a shortcut sometimes I will end up with two. I just delete one & make sure the one left works. :eek:
