New Shortcut Wizard Does Not Start or Option Missing in Windows Vista

by Rohit Khurana on July 25, 2008



Today I would like to share a trouble which I was experiencing for a long time by now in windows vista.


This problem occurs when ever I right click on my desktop to create a new shortcut by Right Click, New >> Shortcut ( as shown in the image below )



But after select shortcut nothing happens except for the mouse pointer changing to an hour-glass or a waiting circle for sometime.


Let’s see how can we fix this trouble

In order to fix it, You need to merge the registry fix for link association in windows. Download the Registry Fix from the link given below and double click to merge it into the system registry.

If your computer has good graphics card and at-least 1GB RAM, the go for Vista, else Windows XP will be a better choice.
