Windows 7: Locate shortcuts of a file? [How To]

Locate shortcuts of a file? [How To]


How do I select a file and locate all shortcuts/copies of it?


I have a personal file on a shared network drive at work.

I created a shortcut to my personal file, in order to assign a Keyboard Shortcut to open it.

I need to delete the shortcut I created, but leave the original personal file that I have on my shared network drive.

Please help, friends! Thank you in advance

Nope. Thank you though!

All I need to do, is select a file, and locate all existing shortcuts of it.
