Oh, I see: if you may a shortcut to different types of executable, you get
a different types of shortcuts.

In any case, try creating a shortcut to a data file (be it autoexec.bat or
a Word document) and then try dragging it onto Notepad or Word,

I rest my case: if Win 95 doesn't know how to deal with shortcuts, I doubt
vfat should try.
