  • Hi,

    how to create a "Windows Mobile Device Center"-desktop shortcut? I am asking as the way to reach "Windows Mobile Device Center" is too complicated going via Network Settings.

    Will install WMDC later to test.

    Just wanted to know if dragging the WMDC Start menu shortcut on to the Desktop works?

    Or you could try "C:\Windows\WindowsMobile\wmdc.exe /show"

    Does this work?

    (From http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc722321(WS.10).aspx#BKMK_3)


    To access Windows Mobile Device Center from the Start Menu

    1. Click Start.

    2. Click All Programs.

    3. Click Windows Mobile Device Center.
