What does this question have to do with scripting?

YOu are askning a bsic user "how to " about windows. YOu should be asking this in a basic Windows user forum.

Go to a command prompt an type the command I posted.

You cannot use this to specify the startup program. You can use it to modify the explorer shortcut.

You will not get the expected behaviors on WS2008R2 under RDP unless 'Desktop Experience" is installed.
