Python 3.8.3 : Create shortcuts and add python to the context menu.

The tutorial for today is a simple script for python user.
If you run this python script in your folder you will get an python shortcut to the python and the python to the Context Menu in Windows 10.
The Context Menu can be used with right click from your mouse, see the screenshot.

This script can also be used with any executable if you make some changes.
import os
import pythoncom
from win32com.shell import shell

dirpath = os.getcwd()
if not os.path.exists(dirpath):
    os.makedirs(dirpath)

win_user = os.getenv('username')
shortcut_path = dirpath + r"\python.lnk"

shortcut_path = str(r"C:\\Users\\")+win_user+str("\\AppData\\Roaming\\Microsoft\\Windows\\SendTo\\python.lnk")

target_path = r"D:\\Python38_64\\python.exe"

shortcut_instance = pythoncom.CoCreateInstance(
    shell.CLSID_ShellLink, None, pythoncom.CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, shell.IID_IShellLink)
persist_file = shortcut_instance.QueryInterface(pythoncom.IID_IPersistFile)
shortcut_instance.SetPath(target_path)
persist_file.Save (shortcut_path, 0)
