Operating Systems

Shortcut support Windows, MacOS and Linux.

The way shortcuts are provide and applications launched depends on the operating system.


.lnk files pointing directly to the application paths are created in the User Desktop (CSIDL_DESKTOPDIRECTORY) and Program (CSIDL_PROGRAMS) folders.


MacOS applications are created which run the application via a terminal and copied to the User Desktop (~/Desktop) and Launchpad (/Applications).


.desktop files are created which start the application via the shell and created in the User Desktop (~/Desktop) and applications menu (~/.local/share/applications).
