If you are like most folks, you probably lack a wee bit of organizational foresight when it comes to your computer. Welcome to the club. No problem unless you need to find something, right? So what if, for some reason you wanted to access all BMP files on your hard drive all of a sudden? You can’t do that very easily, can you? You could launch a search for all files with a BMP extension, but what if you wanted have access to these files regularly? Would it help to have one central location for shortcuts to all files of a given type on your hard drive? Say, in your My Documents folder perhaps?
Shortcut Builder is a little script that allows you to create shortcuts to any file type in one location, regardless of where the source files are located on your hard drive’s partition. With it, you can create a folder with shortcuts to all DOC files, and another for XLS files, and yet another for all ICO files. You can have as many as you like. It’s easy to use too. Just download Shortcut Builder to a temporary directory and unzip it. Double click the script and follow the prompts.
