I have made a habit of creating such shortcuts to the various websites that I find particularly helpful & user friendly. 

 

Today I noticed for the first time that most of these shortcuts refused to launch with the traditional double click unless I already had my browser (chrome) open.

I would much prefer to open directly by launching from a shortcut.

 

Is this possible, & what might have changed if this is (as I think it is) different behaviour?

 

Thanks & small donation sent.

I know this doesn't answer your question but why use shortcuts instead of bookmarks?  See Chris Cosgrove's reply in similar topic.

Agouti,

 

I am afraid it was I that acted unwisely & seem to have given offence.

I am the person getting help via "Mini Tool Box".

I thought your point about Desktop shortcuts was not fully appreciated in the responses to you initially.

So having myself received what I thought was an unhelpful response suggesting the use of bookmarks.

Well I tried to present an everyday user perspective; it seemed to me you would already have this experience so I did not direct my comment to your original thread.

Clearly in the light of day not a wise action.

As for the moderators input, please allow a little, they generally do a great job & I am sure your response will be noted.

I am now unsure where or how responses with Mini Tool Box results etc will be managed.

I assume Louis is working on this.

No great urgency.

 

BTW I have since noticed opening the shortcuts with a double click, that the response or lack of, is erratic.

It seems the double click time response varies & I have tried this multiple times, some require a very fast action & others normal.

They almost always (but not always) open if I right click & select Open.

Bizarre !

Let's start with simple items...please run the chkdsk /r command on your C: partition.

 

Once that is complete and the system has rebooted...please run the sfc /scannow command.

 

Chkdsk From Command Prompt, Win 7 - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/496613/contextmenu-is-causing-explorerexe-to-crash/?p=3067880

 

Run sfc scannow command prompt, Aura - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/579699/missing-uxthemedll-file/?p=3736491

I am some way into some important stuff & it's not convenient to reboot now.

I am now set to run the check on next reboot.

Sorry about delay.

Louis,

 

I have run the checks you requested:

1) Checkdisc - set up & saw it run briefly on the reboot BUT i see nothing now to report?

2) SFC: report says "no integrity violations.

I hope that is at least some small progress & will be of use.

 

Thanks

No news from those two tools...is good news, IMO :).  I don't look at logs for either, it's more detail than I can handle usefully :).

 

How is the system behaving today?

 

Louis

Louis,

 

The issues I complained of initially seem to have almost remedied, I don't know why or how.

I now question whether I am justified in asking for more help & your time.

I'd consider this matter closed, if not solved, unless you think that's too blase.

 

Thanks

Don't worry about my time or efforts to help :).  They are all voluntary, as are all such attempts at assistance rendered here at BC by everyone.

 

If all seems well...that's what we strive for.  OTOH, if you have any system issues that anyone here might help you with...always feel free to initiate a topic in the appropriate forum.

 

Louis
