Thanks for your quick response to that...credit to the community and all that :)

I haven't got it to work yet though.
it's in scripts folder as "ShortcutCreator.vbs"
Scripts.ini has been added to ..(what am I meant to change order to? I put 6?)

but I get error: File unavailable, or may not have permission to acces it...I can't think of what to do...I'll come back to it tomorrow when I'm awake..

The order doesn't really matter.

Personally I would suggest downloading the installer for this script from my website. Don't forget you'll need to restart MM before the script is usable!

Hello Rik,
I have optimized your script (a mail with the .vbs is on the way)

The destination folder can be easily selected:

Copy the code below and save the file named "ShortcutCreator.vbs" to the folder: %appdata%\Mediamonkey\Scripts
