lnkfile shortcuts can **** a ***

In the case that you’re an idiot (much like myself) and change the association of the .LNK file extension (lnkfile):

1) This is for those who cannot double-click to open a .LNK shortcut file, nor can they use the context right-click menu to create a new Shortcut.

2) It’s easy to fix when you realize CLSIDs are the most important part.

3) You can download this from http://vpoet.net/lnk.reg

4) You can just place this in Notepad, beginning with the Windows Registry… and save as a .REG, then import/double-click (make sure to add a blank line at the end via Enter):
