Desktop Shortcut not changing?
the IP address to my web page changes periodicly(dynamic), I usually go there
via a desktop shortcut and as port 80 is blocked by my ISP I have it on port
82 so the address is http://154.20.155.64:82/ or some such. When the IP
changes I make a new shortcut but it still goes to the old IP add. even
though the properties of the new shortcut have the new updated address.

Any solutions would be appreciated, TIA

Re: Desktop Shortcut not changing?
Favorites are just text files with an "URL" extension, which is hidden.

The FavIcon information is contained in the file as shown:

[DEFAULT]
BASEURL=http://website.com/
[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://website.com/
IDList=
IconFile=http://website.com/favicon.ico
IconIndex=1
DefaultIcon=
[{000214A0-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]
Prop3=19,2

Check that the address is the same on both "BASEURL=" and "URL=".

To make it easy, create then merge this registry file to add an Edit
command when you right-click a Favorite:

1. Copy below and paste into Notepad.
(Confirm notepad.exe path)

----------copy inside only----------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\Edit]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\Edit\comm and]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\notepad.exe %1"

----------copy inside only----------

2. Save-as URL_Edit.reg (or any name + .reg).

3. Double-click or right-click and merge into the registry.
