    Yeah, it would be best to start fresh and create a new shortcut on the desktop, and see if you're able to move it into the folder.
    Still no joy. I used option 3.

    I don't know why it isn't working, but it's not all that important. I was just interested in trying out something new (to me).

    I only wanted it on the Quick Launch because I don't like anything on my desktop.

    Thanks for trying to help.

    Nothing to do with Office or Docs or anything in that article. I always use Shawn's method: Create Control Panel All Tasks Shortcut in Windows 10 Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
    TC, @f14tomcat it could be big issue. On page 4 there are some Zardoc's posts (same user here) about having link to GodMode, or shortcut to it in a folder, where Office would search for hyperlink source...

    I'll check it in a day or two, because I have one computer that do exactly this, but not here...

    What I mean is that if you create the God mode shortcut and put it in your Docs folder, you will not be able to insert hyperlinks with any version of office.

    This problem has only begun to appear with version 1703 and up.

    Hi Zardoc. If this turns out to be a solution to such problems, start a thread somewhere so we can give you rep :) And I'll buy you some digital beer, too

    @Wynona,

    I just tested using the shortcut downloaded from Option 1, and was able to move it into the Quick Launch folder for it to then show up in Quick Launch on the taskbar.

    You might see if that will work for you as well.

    Guess that might be why I don't have any issues with God Mode....I don't have Office.

    Ohhhhhhh! I've never done it that way! I've always just gone to Start, found the program, and either dragged it to QL or clicked on More > open file location and drag from there (preferred method; more stable).

    Of course, there's nothing in Start to indicate God Mode.

    Thank you . . . I now have another tool in my brain box!
