How to add ASP to Desktop or Quick Launch?

Hi Shawn

Useful thread, I would like to add ASP to my QuickLaunch toolbar, allowing launching with 2 clicks. Actually I need it there to be able to set a restore point, so I would actually prefer to add "Create a Restore Point" directly to QuickLaunch or Desktop, saving one step. Any ideas?

So far what I have done is to create a shortcut to Restore on the desktop (location control.exe sysdm.cpl,,4). If you want to place in Quick Launch, copy the shortcut and paste it into the QL folder, then deleted the desktop shortcut. This launches ASP OK with the System Protection tab active, allowing 2 click restore point creation.

Jon
