AKA: Add a Shortcut to Open a Directory in XYPlorer or other File Manager instead of Windows Explorer

I didn't see this any place in the forum and thought I'd share in case anyone else finds it valuable.

Windows Explorer (or other File Manager) > Right-Click Folder > Create Shortcut > Right-Click Shortcut > Properties > “Shortcut” Tab > Target > “program path” “directory path” > OK > Drag Shortcut to Logos Toolbar

Upon doing this, you'll notice that the shortcut icon in Logos (and the icon in Windows) reflects the new program you chose (as opposed to the icon of the default program that would normally open the file / folder).

Sample of "Target" setting: "C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\XYplorer.exe" "D:\Documents\LOGOS"
