 +
 +This page describes how you can use a Windows Shortcut so WikiTaxi automatically opens a ''​*.taxi''​ database at start-up.
 +
 +You will probably have have your ''​WikiTaxi.exe''​ and your ''​*.taxi''​ database file in the same folder. First right-click the ''​WikiTaxi.exe''​ symbol with the mouse to open the context menu. Then select the //Create Shortcut// item.

 +{{ shortcut_2.png }}

 +
 +Type the name of your ''​*.taxi''​ database after ''​WikiTaxi.exe'',​ separated by a space. In this example, add the file name ''​simple.taxi''​.
 +
 +{{ shortcut_4.png }}
 +
 +Close the properties dialog by clicking OK. Then double-click the new shortcut icon to test if it starts up WikiTaxi and automatically opens the specified database.
 +
 +You can create multiple shortcuts, for multiple language databases. At last, rename the shortcuts to match the database.
