Re: How to Create Shortcuts in Windows Mobile

You can create shortcuts directly on the Windows Mobile Device by using the built in File Explorer application. In order to create a shortcut in Windows Mobile, first navigate to the file you want a shortcut for and tap and hold the stylus over the file to display a context sensitive popup menu. From the menu select the ?Copy? option.

Now navigate to the location where you want to place the shortcut and tap and hold the stylus over a blank area (such as after the last file in the directory listing). This displays a similar context sensitive popup menu from which you can select a ?Paste Shortcut? option.A shortcut to the file will be created.

Thats it...

Re: How to Create Shortcuts in Windows Mobile

Shortcuts are used within the Windows Mobile operating system for a wide range of purposes. By placing your shortcuts into specific folders you can obtain special functionality. Some examples include:

  1. \Windows\StartUp - shortcuts to applications placed in this directory will automatically be started whenever the Windows Mobile device is reset.

  2. \Windows\Start Menu - shortcuts placed in this directory will appear in the Windows start menu.

  3. \Windows\Start Menu\Settings - shortcuts placed in this folder will appear on the System tab of the Settings application that is accessible via the Start Menu.

Re: How to Create Shortcuts in Windows Mobile

On Windows Mobile it's quite easy, just select the file in explorer, tap and click Copy. Then go to the folder where you want to place the shortcut, tap and click Paste Shortcut.

Unfortunately Smartphones has no Paste Shortcut option.
