Yes you can. The only way I know is you have to get the path the shortcut points to and then execute that path. For non-MSI shortcuts this works fine. But for MSI shortcuts it takes a little more work. Don’t ask me what functions I used because I cant remember. Do some google searches that is where I found it the first time.
