4.1.Opening Windows shortcut file

Simply double-click on a shortcut file (Figure 1 is an example) and the corresponding folder/document will be opened. If the shortcut points to a document, the default application for this document starts and displays the document. If the shortcut points to a file on a network drive, the drive will be mounted automatically (if it is not already mounted) with the protocol defined in the TECH-ARROW’s WinShortcutter preferences (see below).

Note: Windows shortcuts pointing to an executable will not work (obviously 🙂 ).
