[BUG or FEATURE?] Shortcuts starting with a dot ('.')
« on: April 23, 2011, 06:12:27 AM »
Hi!

I am not sure if this actually is a bug or a feature, but if you launch a shortcut to a file/app from FARR that starts with a dot (e.g. ".My Shortcut.lnk"), it will open an explorer window with the path of the shortcut instead of opening the file/app itself.

I have several shortcuts that start with a dot for one reason or another. So is this the intended behavior?
If yes, can someone explain to me what it is good for?
If no, can it be fixed? ;)

Thanks & cheers,
lujomu

definitely not an intended feature.. putting this on my todo list -- not sure why it would behave that way.
