Is there a way to make a Windows 7 shortcut to a specific pdf page?

If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed, you can create a shortcut to a command line that opens a PDF file to a specific page:

AcroRd32.exe /A "page=7=OpenActions" myfile.pdf

Will open "myfile.pdf" to page 7.

You can find more command line switches here.

I guess I don't understand. Where would the command line go? I forgot to mention in my original question that the pdf file is local and that I will need many links to different pages of the same pdf file. – julo Aug 20 '12 at 12:31
Never mind. I needed the FULL path to the exe AND put in quotes (since there is a space in the path). Working now. Thanks a bunch. – julo Aug 20 '12 at 13:05
