Create Shortcuts To Special Folders With Symbolic Link

When you have loads of files, folders and links present on your desktop, then you usually get confused. This is all because of the similar icon of all the file, folders and links. So you spend some time on opening your files and folders each time, which not only wastes your time but also irritates you while working. But as always I have a solution named as ’YouSymLink’, which will help you to get rid of this problem.

This tool will create an icon on the desktop, which can be assigned any link of a file, a folder or any application. So, instead of normal shortcuts you can go for some of the selected files and folders. As the icons will be different in color and design, so you can differentiate them on the basis of their visual appearance. It will be very useful for selecting a folder out of huge number of folders present on the desktop, as we will not have to read their names every time, instead we can identify them with colors of their icon.
