Chapter 3. Managing Files and Folders > Creating a Shortcut to a File or Folder

Creating a Shortcut to a File or Folder

It could take you a while to access a file or folder buried several levels down in a file hierarchy. To save some time, you can create shortcuts to the items you use frequently. A shortcut is a link that you can place in any location to gain instant access to a particular file, folder, or program on your hard disk or on a network just by double-clicking. The actual file, folder, or program remains stored in its original location, and you place an icon representing the shortcut in a convenient location, such as in a folder or on the desktop.

Create a Shortcut to a File or Folder

Open the drive or folder containing the file or folder in which you want to create a shortcut.

Right-click the file or folder, and then click Create Shortcut.

To change the shortcut's name, right-click the shortcut, click Rename from the shortcut menu, type a new name, and then press Enter.

Drag the shortcut to the desired location.
