Question on ".lnk" (Internet shortcuts)
I recall a few years ago of having a .lnk file (I *believe* it was) on my desktop that opened my web browser, and redirected to a tech site. I've tried searching for .lnk, but found countless references to local disk shortcuts, and that's not what I am after, nor do I mean html documents with anchor tags.
Does anyone know how these Internet shortcuts are made? If so, could you post the procedure (Windows targets). This is for a Visual Basic project, but my question is more Internet related than VB related I believe.
