Declined Enhanced SHORTCUT command

May 20, 2008
Elkridge, MD, USA
I suggest enhancing the SHORTCUT command in several ways:

1/ new /R option to install shortcuts from a file
2/ an option to report the analysis of multiple shortcuts in a format ready
for the /R option
3/ options to modify each of the individual fields of a shortcut file
without modifying the other fields, e.g.
SHORTCUT /I"new description" file.lnk
would modify only the DESCRIPTION field.

Suggestions 1/ and 2/ would make it easier to move shortcuts around, create
new but related shortcuts in bulk, etc. 3/ would also allow easily modifying
e.g. the startup directory, or the description - this last could be used to
make it easy to display TCMD version and build, or current game statistics,
etc. by "mouse hovering".
