Automatically create shortcuts to removable media on Windows desktop

4 Comments

  1. Just tried Desktop Media v7.1 from their site. Works great on my Surface Pro w/ Windows 8.1. The one thing I really like about it is that you can exclude a drive. I prefer a clean desktop, and since I always have my 64GB card plugged into my Surface Pro, I don’t want a shortcut always on my desktop.
    It takes less than 5 seconds for a shortcut to appear when plugged in, and the same amount of time for the shortcut to disappear. I work for an outsource IT company, and some of the users we service aren’t too tech savy. I can see this making their lives much more simple, and mine too!
    Download is 353KB…installs without any prompts for crapware installs.

  2. The link to download page for Drive Shortcut (http://tweaknow.com/download/index.php) gets a blank page in Firefox. Tab title and URL bar show it constantly trying to do something (Waiting for TweakNow …) over and over but nothing ever happens. Doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. Turned off AdBlockPlus and same result.

  3. And Desktop Media doesn’t work for me on Windows 7. Why can’t they just build this in?
