Can you post your command lines?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out how to delete all the icons (shortcuts) from the desktop along with the folder created in start menu of a particular program. So I need the commands which to put in WPI in order to have shortcuts and folder in start menu deleted. I didn't find any clear answer on this forum and I have no idea how to attain my goal. If you could post your commands so I can understand what to write in WPI commandline it would be appreciated

You can use this commandline to delete the desktop shortcuts:

del /s/q "%UserProfile%\Desktop\*.lnk"

del /s/q "%AllUsersProfile%\Desktop\*.lnk"

To delete shortcuts in startmenu use:

DEL "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\YOUR PROGRAM.lnk" ---> fill in your program

And for folders in start menu use:

RD /S /Q "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Games\" ---> will delete games folder

put this in a .bat or .cmd file and use it in WPI

Thanks a lot, it works fine, though I had to use %UserProfile% almost all the time or it didn't delete.

I figure that writing RD /S /Q "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\ deletes all the folders at once. By the way, what means RD?

I wonder why if I write these commands in WPI they don't work? I would be more convenient than having a .cmd file.

Thanks for help again, and I would be glad still if people could post their WPI commands. I have 10 lines there, I use only 1 to install a program, I could probably write something useful in the rest of them
