Create Shortcut using VBScript


Create shortcuts on desktop with Visual Basic Script

VBScripts can help wherever automated tasks need to be used. Batch files may not always be appropriate, and the use of Group Policy may not always be available, where a Visual Basic Script can do this, for example, to provide shortcuts to applications.

The following VBScript creates a shortcut on the desktop, here for example to open the Windows Calculator.

Insert VBScript lines by  Copy Paste into Notepad and save them as create-shortcut.vbs, then douple-click to execute the VBScript will create the shortcut on desktop.
' VBScript to created shortcut
Const strProgramTitle = "Shortcut to Calculator"
Const strProgram = "%SystemRoot%\System32\calc.exe"
Const strWorkDir = "%USERPROFILE%"
Dim objShortcut, objShell
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject ("Wscript.Shell")
strLPath = objShell.SpecialFolders ("Desktop")
Set objShortcut = objShell.CreateShortcut (strLPath & "\" & strProgramTitle & ".lnk")
objShortcut.TargetPath = strProgram
objShortcut.WorkingDirectory = strWorkDir
objShortcut.Description = strProgramTitle

  Last but not least, enjoy to edit the Const lines in the script to use any other applications.

Now double-clicking the shortcut on the desktop opens the Windows Calculator.

C:\> cscript //Nologo //B create-shortcut.vbs

This VBScript can be started with cscript from the command prompt or from a batch.
