Hi Yurii,
it seems so, that our shortcut guru is current not
on the list.
Let us together consider:
What I understand is, that you would open an URL. correct?
If I create a shortcut to an URL on my Windows box the created
shortcut looks other than other shortcuts. I assume that windows
maps this in a way I do not know, but to declare it as normal
shortcut will be the wrong way.
As I know, the creation of a shortcut to a URL is current not possible.
