Create A Shortcut Tool lets you create shortcuts anywhere on your computer easily

We are pleased to release Create A Shortcut tool for Windows. Create A Shortcut adds the ability for a user, to select where to create a desktop shortcut for a file system object, from anywhere on a users computer.

Create A Shortcut Tool

Let us say you have opened C:\Program Files\Quick Restore Maker folder and you want to create a shortcut of this programs .exe file in D:\Daily Shortcuts folder, you can do so easily in a couple of clicks from the Program folder itself!

Once you have downloaded the setup, run the installer to install it. It will install the program folder in the C:\Program Files folder. It will also create a Control Panel Uninstall entry.

Now just right-click any file or folder whose shortcut you want to create and click Create A Shortcut context menu item and a folder selection dialog will open. Here, select where you’d like to place its shortcut.

Create A Shortcut lets you select a location to place a shortcut without using the default Windows location (SendTo Desktop or Create Shortcut) or creating a shortcut in its own folder first and the moving it.

Create A Shortcut v 1.0 has been created by TWCF Member Lee Whittington for The Windows Club, on a request from TWCF member Bamajon197, and has been tested on Windows 7, but works on Windows 10 & Windows 8 too.
