Re: Help with shortcuts

I found this on a Cygwin Facebook Users Group, it shows how to create Symbolic links :

It is interesting, but i don't know why anyone would do this. Maybe you could make an "Index" folder and organize certain types of files in it, like music or video.

They say you could use mlink to create an alias to a Cygwin shell script or command So you could create a windows executable that links to a Cygqin command.
This might have a use though.

(mlink is a command a Windows 7)

Greetings, Mike Rushton!

Well thanks I will have to try that.
My only other option was to create a menu and execute in from my profile
... and instead of shortcuts ... they would be options off a menu.
I also found out you can create symbolic links under Win 7, WIn XP (you
must download this Junction Program)
You can create native symlinks under WinXP, but they are not usable.

and also do this under various
Unix/Linux versions.
