Hi Friedrich,

I have found that I can't use the character / (forward slash) in a
shortcut or a folder group description. It accepted a ' (single quote)
ok. Are there other illegal characters I should be aware of?

For example AC/DC is illegal but AC DC's is Ok.

Hi Geoff,

A shortcut is nothing more than a "normal" file. Windows does not allow / \
: * ? " < > |

Hi Friedrich,

That will teach me for posting a question when I've had a big couple
of days. Now I'm embarrassed :-[
