I tried to edit the path of one shortcut with notepad. It turned horribly wrong and all shortcuts became notepad icon.
I ended up using the window recovery to revert back. It there any faster way to fix this problem. I am using Windows 7.
Thanks in advance.

So you're trying to edit a Windows shortcut (aka .LNK file) with a crappy text editor like Notepad ???
Binary files are best dealed with a proper hex editor
(and you must know very well what you intend to do)
Anyway, why not use Explorer's context-menu
Right-click on the shortcut and select properties.
Hold the shift key and right click on a shortcut, click Open With and choose default progam, click on your preferred browser, place a check mark in the always use the selected program to open this kind of file box.
Next time you want to try a different program to open some file, make sure not to check that box.

Thanks for the tip. Most likely I won't be messing with shortcut anymore.
It's a nightmare if something goes wrong. Luckily, I was able to revert.
