Can you not just go to Start / Run and use the Browse button to find the folder and the executables.
It should display all your drives.

If you know where the executables are, why not just right click on them and pin them
to the Start Menu.

Create a new file in your C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder and give it a .bat extension. Choose the name wisely as this will be the command you issue at the run box. So, if you chose the name "notepp" then the file would be called "notepp.bat"

Open this new file in Notepad (or Notepad++) and paste the following:

start /d"D:\softwares\NotepadPP\" NOTEPA~1.EXE

Replacing the D:\softwares\NotepadPP part with the path to the Notepad++ executable.

Repeat for any further programs.

Thanks Andrew, for answering the OP fully.

I have to wonder why a batch file from the Run command is preferred to pinning the programs to the Start Menu
or even placing program icons in the Quick Launch area.

Andrew

I still have my printed MS DOS 5 manual and fondly remember the days when I learned how
to create batch files and there was nothing more satisfying than a perfectly constructed
autoexec.bat. (Config.sys was also challenging, initially, in dealing with several bootup options
with the different memory configurations).

I expect my typing skills would be better, without the point and click! :thumbsup:

Ah, yes! The good old days when men were men and fearlessly edited autoexec.bat. The command line is the dying art of a noble breed of geeks!

And oh, the ecstasy of typing 'win' at the prompt, for the really cool Win 3.1.
(Still works great on my ancient Dell 486 DX2 66mhz).

Alas, my true identity is now revealed.
