Question auto usb letter

Hello,
I created a shortcut to a partable application in my usb key.
But I remember that each time I'll connect my usb key, it wouldn't have the same letter (for exemple: "F:")
I'm searching how to change the shortcut path to point to the letter of the key anywhere it is; like %something%/MyPath/PointOn... someone has an idea?

Well I'm not exactly sure and why you made a shortcut on your USB drive ?

Not sure if it detects on all PCs but you can assign the drive letter to 1 specific letter for your system. To do this, go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Storage -> Disk Management. Right click your USB drive and "Change Drive Letter and Paths".

Exactly, why are you putting a shortcut on your pen drive?
