How to I retain working shortcuts on my XP Mode computer in W7 64 bit to folders om the W7 computer?
Posted on 2011-03-03
On my Windows 7 computer, I also have “Windows XP Mode – Windows Virtual PC” configured.
When in Windows XP mode, I access folders on my Windows 7 computer using this path:
My Computer > C on MyName-PC > Users > “my account” > Documents >
my folders and files live here
To speed up the “walk down” this lengthy path, I create shortcuts at the “my folders and files level here” level and then move these shortcuts up to the Windows XP mode Desktop.
The shortcuts will work for a little while at the XP Mode Desktop level, but then later, for some unknown reason, the Targets inside the Shortcuts gets zeroed out.
Any ideas as to why this happens?
How can I create a shortcut on my XP mode desktop that will remain valid for opening a folder on my W7 computer?
