JSI Tip 1471. The Link Check Wizard.

Chklnks.exe is included in Supplement 4 for the NT Server Resource Kit.

Link Check Wizard scans all of the link (shortcut) files on your system, and checks to see if the shortcut points to an existing application or document. If the associated application or document is not found, the Wizard lists that file as a dead link, giving you the option to remove it.

To find out more information about a particular link, right-click its entry in the list of dead links.

To remove a link, check the box next to it.

To remove all of the listed links, click Select All.

When you have selected all of the links you want to remove, click Finish.

Link Check Wizard requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later.
