Outlook Calendar Shortcut

I searched and found one other unanswered question on here regarding this. I have a scenario where a company I work at has only 6 conference rooms in which the previous system admin created shortcuts to these shared mailbox calendars and places the shortcuts in a share so the user can click on each of the room calendars and view it's contents.

The shortcut icon is a yellow folder with an arrow and the type is 'Exchange Shortcut". After investigating, it appears that these shortcuts can only be made with OL2000 and earlier. Is that true? The company uses OL2003 and I have tried for a few hours to solve this issue with no luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Mike

In earlier versions of Outlook the list of shared calendars were stored in the .fav extension. With Outlook 2003 it is using a .xml extension for the navigation pane. You should see the list of calendars and pst in the following directory below:

C:\documents and settings\username\application data\microsoft\outlook

When you locate the correct username.xml try renaming it to username.fav and make it a shortcut on the desktop. That should do the trick.

On Vista or Windows 7 the directory is the following:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

Yes, that is what I was reading in other posts on the internet. I did find the file you referenced, but unfortunately your solution did not work.

You can create those Exchange shortcuts, which have the extension xnk, from Outlook 2003 by finding the folder in Outlook and then Ctrl dragging it to the desktop or a Windows folder.
