Windows 8 shortcuts
Posted 11 September 2012 - 20:30
IS 2012 Spring.
When my MSI runs, I create a number of shortcuts.
And thing work great.
However, when I run this MSI on a Windows 8 professional pc, the shortcuts end up being "pinned" to the start screen for all users.
Is there a way (perhaps a shortcut shell property or some sort) to create these shortcuts on a Windows 8 box WITHOUT them being pinned to the Start screen ?
My Program group and shortcuts appear correctly on the ALL Apps screen, (A good thng.)
Thanks so much for all comments.

In InstallShield 2013 there's a Setting for this purpose.
Note however that Microsoft changed the behavior in Windows 8.1: here no shortcuts will be pinned automatically, they only get added to "all apps".
