JSI Tip 0422 - Freeware SHORTCUT.EXE replacement.

In tip 177 we talked about using SHORTCUT.EXE to disable link tracking for a shortcut.

SCUT.EXE is a freeware program which, while not as flexible, can disable link tracking for an entire drives shortcuts because it supports wildcards:

    SCUT C:\*.LNK -s -q will disable link tracking for all .Lnk files on the C: drive.

If you can't connect, download SCUT from here.

NOTE: See Freeware shortcut.exe creates shortcuts from the command-line.
