I have been searching online for creating "to-do list" shortcut. The closest
thing I found is create a shortcut for "Tasks", which is
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE" /select outlook:tasks
Then I search online, it said that "tasks" is a MAPIFolder, does anyone know
what's the MAPI folder for "to-do list"? Or does anyone know how to create a
shortcut to "To-Do List"?

The To Do list is, I believe, a generated view combining information from
the Calendar and Tasks folder that would have no shortcut like a folder
does.

Although it's a generated view, but the above solution works. Just use %20 to
replace the "space" in between "to-do" and "list". I tried it, and it works.

Then I don't think you're using the "To Do" list found in Outlook 2007, but
an arbitrary folder that you created and named "to-do list". It alwasy
helps to name your Outlook version and describe exactly what you want to do.
I'm glad, however, that Mark's crystal ball was working yesterday.
