    Thank you for a great product; some suggestions:
    1. Hide the program from the Alt-Tab switcher to save having to tab past it unnecessarily.
    2. Allow the user to specify custom variables that the program will recognise for cases where there are multiple shortcuts in a common path.
    3. Allow the user to select an executable when changing a shortcut icon.

    1. Already possible. The highlighted option does exactly this, it executes the process as a background process and the result is that it will be hidden from the Alt-Tab.

    2. Please give more details about this. You can already use environmental variables when defining a shortcut. For example: %windir%\notepad.exe. What is your use case where internal variables are really required ?
    3. Not possible. I tried to offer a way to browse dll, exe, icl files so that the user can choose an icon from them like in a dedicated software that can browse such files. Unfortunately, the amount of code and the complexity made me abandon this idea. This is not very easy to achieve through managed code like C#.

    Say I have a number of shortcuts in paths for which there are no environment variables: it would be useful to be able to manage them within the program rather than on separate machines.

    You mean like defining some aliases ? G:\Data\Downloads\Games = GMZ and then you would use in the shortcut, the path %GMZ%\MyGame\game.exe ?
