I am very new to VB
.NET (And programming in general for that matter) and for a first project I am building a small app which requires extracting the Name, URL and IconFile from all the IE Favorites in the folder. I have searched the net endlessly, so far coming up with one or 2 methods but no real way of doing what I need to.
The 2 methods mentioned were either using CSID_InternetShortcut
(But this looks VERY difficult, using lots of COMs etc) or simply opening each .URL file
and extracting the text I need from inside it.
The contents of a typical .URL file are:
I assume that no matter what I do I will need to enumerate the whole folder.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
