launching shortcuts

Posted on


By mistake,I have set the default program for .lnk files to windows media center.So whenever i launch a shortcut WMC opens but the shortcut does not get launched.Can you tell me what is the default programme to open shortcuts accurately?


This will show you what your current association is. At a command prompt:

>assoc .lnk

To return it to the value shown here:

>assoc .lnk=lnkfile

Within Windows this is done by:

  1. “Right-Click” on the program.

  2. Select “Open With”

  3. Select “Choose Default Program”

  4. Select the program that you wish to associate with that file, and then select “ok”

  5. The file should from then on be defaulted to the program you selected.
