they are stored in REG_BINARY format in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartPage\Favorites
Next question/problem:- does anyone know how to add/pin shortcuts to the main Start Menu (Explorer Shell)? It would be great if ShutdownPE could be pinned there, and other apps too! By the "main" Start Menu, I mean the part you see when you first open it, not the All Programs section. I did try this by copying a .lnk to the profile here:"\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu\"Which is where my Windows 7 PC stores them, but this didn't seem to work in PE
I have also seen them in some cased in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartPage2\Favorites
thanks for the reg entries. I will test them and add them to the official script. I haven't had any luck getting rid of Lock entry either.
