Unable to add a couple of shortcuts

Dec 8, 2009 at 11:22 PM

I was trying to add a couple of shortcuts to ME, but it doesn't seem to let me, so i figured i would ask here if its possible, and if not, recommend that compatibility be added to a future version.  The ones that it wont let me add are My Computer, and the little shortcut for minimizing all windows to show the desktop.

There are A few ways to add item the ME

  1. Right click and select [Add Running Program]
  2. Have the ME Pinned and Drag & Drop
  3. Right Click and select [Add File or Program]

you can add any file not just shortcuts to the program

Hello, guys!

Jacob, thanks for help :)

Let me show you one trick.

To add "Show Desktop" item to ME you should do following things:

1. Create file "ShowDesktop.scf" in the same dir as ME is placed.

2. Open it with Notepad and enter following text:

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[taskbar]
Command=toggleDesktop

3. Save it.

4. Open ME, pin it to Desktop (blue pin button ;)

5. Drag "ShowDesktop.scf" file to ME.

6. Have fun :)

Tried on XP SP3.

Sincerely yours, Alex.

Sorry, found the shortest way!

Open ME and drag-drop the "Show Desktop" button from quick launch directly to ME.

Have fun!

Thanks to Vova for this hint!
