PC Prank Of The Day : Shortcuts changed

Shortcuts are nothing more than files pointing to other files that they should startup. For example, if you have a Windows Media Player shortcut on your desktop, right click on the shortcut and select Properties. The Target will be something like:C:/Program Files/Windows Media Player/wmplayer.exe. Change this line into another one, like C:/Program Files/MSN Messenger/msnmsgr.exe for MSN Messenger. Press OK to save the changes.
Probably the icon will have changed too. No problem about that, you can change that. Right-click the shortcut and select¬†Properties. Choose the¬†Shortcut¬†tab. Click on the¬†Change Icon¬†button and navigate to your previous program, such as Windows Media Player. Click “Open” to select the file and press¬†OK¬†to save.

Pretty corny joke, but still one that can drive other users insane.

Have Fun
