comment Overriding HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH as a Windows 7 user
I haven't needed these methods in a while, but I recall developing them specifically for gvim, which I believe was using HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH. These methods do not require that you execute from the command line; any applications using the variables or drive letter will all be affected. Method #2 and #3 are "permanent", and only need to be executed once for the changes to stick. Method #1 can be automatically executed at startup by placing a shortcut in C:\Users\<You>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup, or setting up a task in Task Scheduler. I hope this helps!

The original website links to the DonationCoder forum, which still hosts the application. I've added your mirror and some additional version information above. Thanks!

comment Pin two shortcuts to same application with different settings to taskbar
The window should go away if you change cmd /C "Admin.lnk" to in the batch file to start "" "Admin.lnk". I've updated my response to suggest this approach.
