Computers often use shortcut links to make it easier for users to locate and open files.
These links are commonly placed in a folder easily accessible to users, such as a desktop folder.
When a shortcut is created, it is given directory information and an icon.
If the file associated with a shortcut is later moved, the shortcut may fail to locate the file.
When this problem occurs, you need to update the shortcut's directory information.
This process is often automated by operating systems, but in a some instances, you need to repair shortcuts manually

Right-click on a broken shortcut link's icon.
Select the "Properties" option. Locate the "Target" box and copy its information into your clipboard using the Ctrl and C keys.
Open the "My Computer" folder on your computer and paste the target information into the folder's address bar using the Ctrl and V keys.
If the address bar is not viewable, you may need to enable it in the folder's settings.
Find address bar options in the "View" menu under "Toolbars."
The file's target path folder will open.

Locate the file in the target path folder.
If the file is not present, the target path is inaccurate and likely the cause of the shortcut link error.
Locate the file in its correct folder.
Browse folders or search for the file by typing the file name into the "Start" menu.
After finding the file, open the properties of the shortcut link icon again.
Copy the file's correct path, from the containing folder's address bar, and paste it in to the "Target" box, replacing the incorrect link.
Another way to find a file's target path is by right clicking on the file and selecting Properties.
You can find accurate target information in the "Target" box, provided the icon is the original file icon and not a shortcut.

    Set a new Windows Explorer launch folder When you run Windows Explorer, it...


    Set a new Windows Explorer launch folder When you run Windows Explorer, it always opens to the Libraries folder. That's fine if you use Microsoft's default file organization, which designates Libraries as the overall container for your folders. But what if you don't? You might prefer to have Windows Explorer open to Computer or any other folder you choose. Here's how to do it:

    1. Right-click the Windows Explorer icon on the taskbar (it's the one that looks like a folder), and then right-click the Windows Explorer icon from the context menu that appears and select Properties. The Windows Explorer Properties dialog box appears.

    2. You'll have to edit the Target field on the Shortcut tab of this dialog box in order to change the default location at which Explorer opens.

    If you want Explorer to open to a specific folder, simply enter the name of the folder, substituting your folder name for Folder, below, like this:
    %windir%\explorer.exe c:\Folder


    So to open Explorer to the folder named Budget, you would type this in the Target field:
    %windir%\explorer.exe c:\Budget


    If you want Explorer to open to special, pre-set locations, such as Computer, you'll need to enter special syntax in the Target field. Following is a list of three common locations and the syntax to use, followed by the syntax for the Libraries folder in case you ever want to revert to the default.
    • Computer: %windir%\explorer.exe ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    • My Documents:%windir%\explorer.exe ::{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
    • Network: %windir%\explorer.exe ::{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
    • Libraries: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe

    3. After you've changed the Target field, click OK. Next time you launch Windows Explorer, it will open to the new location you've designated.
