That can be done, and it would require another meter: String. With MouseOverAction and MouseLeaveAction.

Code: Select all

[Variables]
HighlightColor=
FontColor=

[Shortcut]
Meter=String
FontFace=
FontSize=
FontColor=#FontColor#
Text=Browser

MouseOverAction=[!SetOption Shortcut FontColor "#HighlightColor#"][!UpdateMeter Shortcut][!Redraw]
MouseLeaveAction=[!SetOption Shortcut FontColor "#FontColor#][!UpdateMeter Shortcut][!Redraw]

AntiAlias=1
DynamicVariables=1
Use your font settings.

If they aren't drawn by Rainmeter (i.e. as part of a skin), nope. Windows' desktop shortcuts are controlled by Windows, not Rainmeter, so unless using some kind of program to patch the Windows DLLs, manipulating them the way you want is not possible. Of course, if they are part of a skin, you can do all kinds of things with them.

The desktop shortcuts - as in default ones that come in package with operating system or shortcuts from some skin in Rainmeter?

The simplest skin that will be responsible for the animation of icons on the desktop. I will create icons in the skin that will be responsible for opening a program or folder.

May I suggest you to look at some Docks and Launchers? What you might be trying to accomplish might already be made.

Unfortunately you can't use Rainmeter to react to mouse hovering over a Windows shortcut, wherever is it placed. Sorry, but that's it.

You can open a program or folder from whatever icons in your skin, but don't expect those icons to replace the default ones that come in package with operating system. Overlapping them and such, yes, but replacing them, no.
