Send shortcut to folder


D

Don

Is there a way to simplify the process of sending a shortcut to a particular
folder? I have a "My Frequent" menu on my taskbar that is linked to a folder
of the same name. I've added this to my "Send to" folder. However, when I
right click on a file and "send to my frequent" it copies the file to that
folder. Instead, I want it to send a shortcut to that folder. As of now I
have to create a shortcut in the original folder, then send that shortcut to
the destination folder, then delete the shortcut from the original folder.
I'd really like to simplify this process.

I hope this makes sense!

TIA

Don

Since you're dealing with a taskbar folder, one easy method is to
right-click the file and choose "send to desktop as a shortcut". Then
click open the folder and drag the shortcut inside.
