Shortcuts

I am organizing files for my office where all of the files are placed in a universal folder. Those files have multiple shortcuts in a series of folder paths that are logical for the other team members. I have done all of this on my desktop, but now need to move the system to a shared drive. Is there a way to do this without damaging the shortcuts? If not, is there a way to repair one shortcut and have it repair all of them (find the new location of the master files)?

    You can try to share them by using the original source that is the main files/ folders location.

    I don't think it's possible to have the new location be reflected in everyone's shortcut with a single command.

    (Windows) Shortcuts are relative to the system they're created on. Copying them to a different (shared) location usually makes them invalid. And when a different user on a different system tries to use them, they won't always make sense for that system even if they aren't already invalidated.

    But it might be possible. Drive assignments, share names, etc., would need to be strictly controlled and 'standard' for each user.
