This SBI command is outdated and will probably not be supported in Spybot-S&D 2.0. As of yet, it is unclear whether an automated conversion path exists. Automated conversion paths may also be less sufficient than a manual upgrade. We recommend that you take a look at File for a possible alternative command.

Searches all desktop icons for one linking to the given filename.


DesktopIconByLink:<filename>,[(boolean)partial],<advanced parameters>



This example searches for any desktop icon pointing to any spyware.exe.


  1. The first parameter is used to identify the link target filename, either complete or partial (see second parameter).
  2. If you specify 11 as the second parameter (aka true), the first needs to be a part of the full filename only. Specifying 0 means you've specified a full filename (including path).
  3. As usual, you should specify advanced file parameters to avoid trouble resulting from ambiguous filenames. This can be done in the third parameter.

As an alternative to using this command, you might take a look at the File command, combined with the path template <$DESKTOP> and the advanced file parameter target[link].
