How can I open a specific website in Chrome (or any browser) as part of a Macro Panel?

Shortcuts can be used in place of launching an EXE, but care must be used in setting up shortcut and referencing the actual shortcut file. The following example walks through creating the shortcut, configuring the shortcut, determining the exact shortcut link file name (.lnk file), and setting up a Macro Panel to open and launch the shortcut.

At this point, you can test the shortcut by double-clicking on the modified desktop shortcut - it should open the page you specified - if necessary, modify until shortcut performs desired action.


Now run CMD (Command prompt) and change to Users, [UserName], Desktop, e.g.

(Here user is the User name - yours is your login/user name)

cd \Users\user\Desktop[Enter]

Then type dir[enter] to list files. Verify .lnk name to use in Macro.

Here, exact file is: \Users\user\Desktop\Google Chrome.lnk
