#7777 closed enhancement (wontfix)

GUI: Automatic shortcut creation

Description

It would be nice to have an automatic option to create shortcuts for each game added to the list, and place them on the desktop or any other folder. Right now, Windows users have to manually create shortcuts for the main executable, and then add the appropriate switches and targets to each game. It's not that much work, but it would save lots of time when the list has lots of entries.

There is no portable way of creating that, thus it will be windows-specific, and moreover, the shortcut format is not officially documented, and we have to rely on Win32 API calls to create them.

In short, ScummVM is about portability, and concept of shortcuts is highly importable.
