Batch editing shortcut targets
Posted on 2013-01-04
Running Windows 7 Professional SP-1, I have just converted over a thousand .wps files to .docx. However, now there are hundreds of shorcuts, in myriad folders, which point to non-existent .wps files. I would like to batch edit these links, to point them to the new .docx files. The application which I usually rely upon, Shortcut Doctor, is not performing, for some reason. It finds all the references to .wps in shortcut links, but will not change them to .docx (it doesn't find them again, during the Replace process, although it found them during the Search process). Is there an application or a script which I can use, which will locate all these shortcuts and update them?
