This is something I need to find to put a stop to users who can't seem to understand that their desktop is NOT made to keep all their documents piled up on.
I can make a single shortcut to My Documents on their desktop for them but that isn't good enough apparently. They want one for every single folder and file. (Not all files within folders, just a few that are "loose files" usually word docs.).
None of them can remember HOW to make a shortcut once shown. Besides which, it is a matter of they just don't want to do even the least bit of extra effort. The issue is not just one of neatness, their Documents Folder is automatically backed up on the Office Servers because the files in there are important. But I cannot automatically backup their entire desktop due to hidden system files and others.
I'm trying to find a utility that would automatically create a shortcut on their Desktop to any folders that are created or moved into their My Documents folder. Basically, the same procedure as "right click, send, shortcut to desktop" but I was wondering if there might be a way to make that just "happen" automatically for any folders created or placed inside another folder.
The same procedure might be used for other Main Storage folders like pictures, music etc. I am just unsure of how to make this an automated procedure that would occur every time.
