Goto where the program is in file explorer, and instead of just clicking it, highlight it with the stylus and then click on menu, edit, copy. Then browse to Windows\Start Menu\Programs\ click menu, edit, paste shortcut... done

Re: make shortcut for program

I use total commander to make shortcuts,
Highlight exe file and then left soft key "file" and choose the >>>>> selection.. you get and option to create shortcut and a box to set it to the directory you want to store it. (usually windows/start menu)

Re: make shortcut for program

Go into File Explorer one more time & highlight the Garmin program. Hit MENU>EDIT>COPY to copy the program & then make your way to WINDOWS>START MENU>PROGRAMS folder. Again go to MENU>EDIT>PASTE SHORTCUT to add the shortcut for your program. Then rename the shortcut so it doesn't say "Shortcut to Garmin" or whatever.

Re: make shortcut for program

Just thought I would provide this as another alternate way of creating shortcuts for anyone interested.



LnkMgr is a link creator and editor for the Pocket PC. It allows a user to effortlessly create and catagorize links in the Start Menu folder.

Usage:

is the Programs folder located in StartMenu If nothing is specified it will go into the StartMenu

To Create a Link: Simply change the catgory in the category dropdown to another catgory.

To Modify a Link: Simply select a different category from the category dropdown

To Delete a Link: Simply select the empty '' option from the category dropdown

To Create a Category: Click Menu and select Categories...
