updating or sync shortcut locations

Post by *sportkiraly » 2018-10-03, 09:50 UTC

I am trying to find a way (if there is) to sync or update the locations of my shortcuts. I have different network directories and we have changed their locations to a bigger server but I had quit some shortcuts linked to the different things on the different network locations and now after the move I can't use the shortcuts as the network directory has been moved. Can I somehow update or sync all my shortcut files at one go? I really don't want to spend my day on redirecting my 180-200 shortcuts one by one. :cry:
Thank you! Any help is appreciated.

Are you talking about shortcuts at TC (buttonbar, directory hotlist, ...) or at Windows (shortcut at desktop, ...) ?

Sorry. I meant the normal Windows shortcuts. I had to cross reference (create shortcuts) some files from the different network places to make the access more easier for people. I am using also the Indesign program for typesetting and there if I update one link location the rest gets updated automatically (normally). I know this is a total different program and so on but I was wondering if there is anything in TC which I might have missed to handle my shortcuts. Thanks.

With TC you can edit the windows shortcuts only one by one, but try ShortcutsSearchAndReplace

Thank you!! Your link just worked well (ShortcutsSearchAndReplace). This save me some hours. Thanks again.
