         strDesktop = WshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop");
         var oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strDesktop + "\\Shortcut Script.lnk");
         oShellLink.TargetPath = WScript.ScriptFullName;
         oShellLink.WindowStyle = 1;
         oShellLink.Hotkey = "Ctrl+Alt+e";
         oShellLink.IconLocation = "notepad.exe, 0";  //Zero is the index
         oShellLink.Description = "Shortcut Script";
         oShellLink.WorkingDirectory = strDesktop;
