|It is a good idea to put quotes at start and end in case some
name in the path isn't DOS name compliant. Be sure to click
"apply". In this example, I have setup the shortcut
to start the program named Metapad
and to have Metapad use the desktop as the default directory
for loading and saving files. And - bless its heart - that's
exactly what it does.
You can see that there is also a data window for "shortcut
key"...presumably, so you can make a keyboard shortcut
to start the program. If you try to enter something in that
window, it will give you Ctrl + Alt + <pressed key>.
However, after you click apply nothing happens when you press
that combination. I don't really care since I have Hot
Key Plus but if you know how to get it to work I'd like
to know. Click "Help" in the title bar, then "About..."
for an email link.
If you want to make a keyboard shortcut with Hot Key Plus to
do the same thing as above, just put the path in its "Working
Directory" window. Keep in mind that not all programs
will use the default directory information fed to them in these
ways. They should but they don't. C'est la vie...
