  • Shortcuts et. al.

    1. How is a shortcut programmatically created?

    2. I asked this a long time ago, but cant' find it now:
    How are file associations found, e.g. when right clicking on a file a dialog pops up with "Open with" plus other options; then a list of possible apps is displayed plus an option to browse for an appropriate app. From where does it get the possible apps.?

    For the shortcut have a look at https://forum.powerbasic.com/forum/u...tion-and-query

    As for File Associations it is done in the registry, have a look here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...(v=vs.85).aspx

        Thanks, guys. Those help a bunch.

        Looks like getting/setting file associations is a little more complicated than I anticipated; however, I'll get there.
