Windows 7: general

normally in windows , we create shortcuts to various programs and folders,
when we delete the original programs and folders , the shortcuts dont get deleted, it would be nice if shortcuts also get deleted when the original is deleted

Hello Abddba, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If the shortcuts were created when the program was installed, then they will be removed automatically when the program is uninstalled through "Programs and Features".

Any manually created shortcuts will unfortunately have to also be manually deleted though.

The free program ShortcutsMan is good to help find broken shortcuts if you do not remember where they are though.

Hope this helps,
