I would prefer if I don't have to use third party tool. It doesn't make sense that windows lacks this feature.

In Windows' command prompt you've got the mklink command. Here's the reference for it: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753194(WS.10).aspx

From the looks of it - no, Windows cannot list symlinks. You would have to use the aforementioned Nirsoft software.
