Experts,

Can you make a folder in XP as a hyperlink to another location?  

example:
You have a folder and within this folder is another folder that links to another location.  I dont see any folder properties that have this feature.   Maybe there is some other trick.

thank you

In windows XP it not directly supported,

however there is a tool, you can get it from this location

once you have downloaded it, you just need to do this

junction <link folder> <destination folder>

Open in new window


hope this helps
