Hi guys,

Is it possible to create shortcuts & place these into a folder
i.e. a folder of shortcuts.

e.g. I work with Audio files & want to group them so when I open My DAW
I can see one folder in the browser with all the shortcuts there.

I'm sorry I am a windows newb & appreciated any advise.
To set this up on a mac was very simple but Im having no success
setting it up in win 8, I have created a folder & placed shortcuts there
but My DAW's browser won't see the files (shortcuts) it sees the folder
ok but not its contents (the shortcuts)
hope I have explained myself alright
the files are audio wav files

please advise many thanks folks

Do exactly what you describe.

Create a folder wherever you want it.
Open the fodder then create shortcuts inside it to whatever you need.

oh I see I must recreate the shortcuts inside the folder then direct them
to their addresses so to speak (right?)
e.g. a right click & send to (?)

sorry its probably the easiest thing in the world thanks for your reply Ztruker

not just at Windows 8 right this minute will try when I get home

thank You :)

Here how I do it:

1. Right click on the (music) file and Send To desktop - that creates a shortcut of that file on the desktop

2. Create a folder on the desktop - right click on the desktop > New > Folder

3. Drag your shortcut into that folder

4. Move the folder to wherever is convenient for you - e.g. Cut/Paste
