    Hello XP Forum members,
    I am curious (part of being the XP legacy 'noob' i am.. : P) about how to run,launch the windows xp 'create desktop shortcut' dialogue box from either a cmd prompt or start menu run box??

    I would like to know the steps to do the aforementioned (or if it is even possible?!?) task in windows xp pro?!

    Thanks in advance for a helpful reply!

    for any shortcut I want I just right click and use send to /desktop/create shortcut, have never used a dialog box

    https://www.tecrobust.com/create-shutdown-shortcut-key/

    above has instructions to create a shutdown shortcut with the dialog box, so you could put some other command in the dialog box, but the steps are there.

    Right-click an open area on the desktop, point to New, and then click Shortcut.
    Click Browse.
    Locate the program or file to which you want to create a shortcut, click the program or file, click Open, and then click Next.
    Type a name for the shortcut. If a Finish button appears at the bottom of the dialog box, click it. If a Next button appears at the bottom of the dialog box, click it, click the icon you want to use for the shortcut, and then click Finish.
