Tips and Tricks -- Create Shortcuts

By: The Authors of Pocket PC Tips and Tricks

Shortcuts give fast access to important docs. If you are like I am, you use your Pocket PC to keep a daily journal of activities, or a daily "To Do" list. If you don't use a third-party finance program, then perhaps you use Pocket Excel for your finance tracking needs. (continued...)

All of these types of documents are those that you are likely to access frequently - either daily or several times a day. If you have documents like this, you may want to place shortcuts to them right on your start menu. To place shortcuts on your start menu, do the following:

  • Open File Explorer.

  • Navigate to the directory where your file is saved.

  • Tap and hold on your file and then tap "Copy".

  • Navigate to "My Device" then tap the "Windows" folder, and then the "Start Menu" folder.

  • Tap the "Edit" menu.

  • Tap "Paste Shortcut"

  • You can then rename your shortcut because longer filenames affect how wide your start menu is.
