  • Does anyone know if it is possible to attach a desktop shortcut in an email?  I'd like to attach a URL with an associated icon in an email, and send it to several friends to use.  Thanks.

    However, you can't do what you want to do.

    Although you can send the shortcut, it is simply a .lnk file stored on your dekstop, it is useless to the receiver as the properties of the link point to your PC and the icon for the shortcut, is typically pointing to a resource on your PC, too.
