I added some bits to skwire's code: CreateShortcutsIn.zip
The zip file should contain an executable and a sample ini file (which should get copied by invoking the executable if there isn't already an ini file with the name "CreateShortcutsIn.ini" in the same directory as the executable).
3=C:\Documents and Settings
The Hotkey setting should be something that the AHK Hotkey command
can understand. In the example here, it is set to "Ctrl Shift C".
The numbered entries indicate possible destinations to copy to.
The Total setting is the total number of numbered entries. It is set to 3 here, but if one were to set it to 2, then it should ignore any numbered entries with numbers larger than 2. Please make entries counting from (and including) 1 in increments of +1. It is unlikely the code will behave otherwise.Shortcut CreatorNote:
If I understand correctly, any existing shortcuts will be overwritten.
I failed to include credits in the zip file (perhaps for a future version?). Here is the draft of the CREDITS.txt file -- comments welcome:
