Character limit to Shortcut Target? Tags: Microsoft Windows XP Last response: August 4, 2009 8:06 AM in Windows XP Share amit August 12, 2005 8:29:03 PM Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?) Hi, There seems to be a limit to the number of characters that can be typed in the "Target" for a shortcut in Windows XP. I was able to not type after 259 characters. Is this a fixed limit, or can it be changed/increased? I have a shortcut that has 3 files in the target (MS Access, Database application and the Workgroup file), and some of these are on the server, with long folder paths. I could place the files further up the tree shortening the pathname, but was wondering if there is a way to increase the limit. Thanks. -amit More about : character limit shortcut target Anonymous July 3, 2009 3:37:42 AM My apologies for bumping such an old thread, but it remains unanswered and it's an answer I'm seeking. just say NO to godaddy August 4, 2009 8:06:00 AM I, too, would like an increased capacity using a batch file to launch Iron Chromium with a ton of switches is other than ideal Can't find your answer ?
