    Win7 64bit New Shortcut does not open

    Hello,
    When I right-click the desktop, then click New, and then click Shortcut, nothing happens.

    It has worked in the past, but I don't know when it went bad.

    Does anyone know how to repair?

    Thanks, Dave

    Try the registry patch in step 9 on this page. Otherwise, you could do a System Restore to a date prior to the problem occurance.

    Did you use a registry cleaner by any chance? That could have caused the problem.

    Thank you jwitalka.

    The registry patch worked. I do regularly use CCleaner. If I lose the Shortcut again I'll investigate if CCleaner could be the cause.
