    I've been reading around on this topic & find most content relevant t
    IE or desktop icons in response to requests for how to change/delet
    these icons

    Few others are about installations gone bad that change all icons t
    execute one thing or another

    What I'd like to know is, on what action(s) does Vista decide to chang
    a directory icon to a shortcut icon & why

    Got a laptop with Vista Business (x32) pre-installed & I use it a
    little as possible because it's rediculously unintuitive

    Even doing a search on this icon behavior has taken more time readin
    than the knowledge is worth. I do not want to be an IT expert when
    grow up. I shouldn't have to study as if I did just understand the dail
    events of my OS. ('nuf sniveling

    Any insight into what Vista is actually doing that makes director
    icons change to shortcut icons so I can stop/reverse that action, woul
    be gratefully received. It is not lost on me the enormity of knowlege o
    this forum & the vast amounts of time it took to acquire it

    Thank you kindly for your time & consideration
