Question

How Can I Keep a Shortcut from Being Deleted from the Desktop of the VRC79xx or VRC89xx?

Facts

VRC7942, VRC7946, VRC8942, VRC8946 all OS Versions

Answer

When the VRC79xx or VRC89xx is cold booted, a shortcut will normally be deleted.  Strategically saving the shortcut to a specific RAM location will make it cold boot persistent

Copy the shortcut to any of the two locations below on the VRC79xx or VRC89xx terminals and the shortcut will be automatically copied back to the desktop after a cold boot:
  • \flashfx\copytoram\system\desktop
  • \flashfxx\copytoram\rootwindows\desktop
