I don't want to set the icon or the name of it, i just want to read
it.  For example, I created a new 'Link to Application'.  I right
clicked this and did a rename and named it to 'foobar'.  I right click
on it again and go to properties.  I click on the application tab.  In
the command box, I want to put something like:
rdesktop -g 1280x1024 <SOMETHING>   where <SOMETHING> is a special
variable that contains the name of the object, in this case, 'foobar'.

Thanks for the help!
