Publisher description for Shortcut Doctor

Shortcut Doctor program icon

How many Windows 95/98/ME NT/2000/XP program & file shortcuts are on your computer? 100? 200? 500? And how many are "ill" because you moved something to another directory or deleted a program or changed your network drive maps? Not sure? You can always roll up your sleeves, test them one at a time and coax Windows to try a fix. Or you can work SMART & can call in the Doctor. Shortcut Doctor checks your Windows shortcuts to see which point to targets that can no longer be found. The Doctor can then edit or resolve invalid shortcuts, search and replace shortcuts pointing to a certain drive or directory with another (with or without validation), search & replace shortcut command parameters, or delete shortcuts to the Recycle Bin. All shortcuts on a drive can be displayed, regardless of whether they are healthy or not. Operations can be set to ignore paths such as CD-ROM or network drives. Internet shortcuts can also be triaged for errors, edited, or created. Output in the Results List can be written to a file - perfect for diagnostic reports. Shortcut Doctor can also empty the Recent Documents list at the click of a button. A command line script function lets you automate complex operations and control program options in effect. For example, you can disable path validation before search-replace operations - useful for setting up shortcuts that might not be valid until they are transferred to a remote machine. Command line functions also allow you to Create Shortcuts from scratch by specifying the path/file name for the .lnk file to create, the path to the program to launch, and any special command line parameters for that program. See Shortcut Doctor F1 hlp for usage Details.
