1. Load Sitecore Desktop automatically and pre-select an item

Good news, everyone! There a convenient way of creating a shortcut that not only loads Content Editor, but also select any item you would like and loads its data right hand side. Here is the format of url:
where fo parameter stands for the item you want to pre-load.
