Preventing windows shortcut target address from updating

When a shortcut is created is is pointed to a target file.  If I move the target file to a different directory then the shortcut target attribute automatically updates to point to that target file.  How do I prevent that shortcut target attribute from changing when I move the file.  But rather point to the orginal target that the shortcut was orginally created for.

Disable the service "Distributed Link Tracking Client service" (TrkWks). That should prevent from auto-adjusting shortcut targets.
