Managing Shortcuts

I’ve covered creating, editing, and deleting shortcuts in the Start menu and Quick Launch toolbar. Shortcuts also can appear on the desktop and in folders. A shortcut can link to a program, document, folder, disk, printer or other device, web address (URL), or system folder (such as My Computer). When you double-click a shortcut, its linked file opens. You can create and modify a shortcut to any item and store it anywhere; it’s a tiny file.

Windows offers two types of shortcut files: Windows shortcuts (.lnk files) and internet shortcuts (.url files). A shortcut shares the icon of the original but adds a small boxed arrow in one corner (Figure 2.44).
