Tricking Internet Explorer

Recommended Posts

Quote:

 

The trick is that Internet Explorer 6 and 7 beta can be fooled into running Windows desktop shortcuts instead of going to the Internet. For example, right-click your desktop and choose Create a Shortcut. Tell the shortcut to run Notepad.exe, but name the shortcut "www.aol.com." Now type www.aol.com into IE (Internet Explorer) and see what happens. Instead of going to www.aol.com, IE starts Windows notepad.

That has to be the easiest thing to showcase to people and prove why IE browser integration with the Windows OS has always been and always will be a big utterly stupid ideal.
