I've started to use the new mklink command
to create symbolic links, junctionpoints etc with windows vista. However I would really appreciate either a gui for creating these links (with overview of already created links) or context menu options for quickly creating the various types of links via drag/drop or right click.
As basically you can make a symbolic link to a folder with symbolic links to your recent projects, then have them work as regular folders in the quick launch toolbar. (navigating through folders without clicking). It would be a great timesaver not to have to start an elevated commandprompt and do copy and pasting paths to make up the right mklink.
If you don't know what I am on about see the article.
