I have made a personalized context menu item, which appears to function on all kinds of files, including shortcut links. When I choose my custom alternative, it applies the action to the shortcut target rather than the .lnk file. At present, I wish to design an icon to make it more prominent.

My antivirus software and Notepad++ have been able to achieve this, which indicates it is achievable. The only question remaining is how to do it.
