I need to create a 'Folder Shortcut' in Windows Explorer in Windows 2000. I don't mean a mapped drive, just a Folder Shortcut to a shared network folder (it will end up as a first-level object under My Network Places).

Right click the folder and select "Create Shortcut". Move the shortcut to wherever.

I've tried that, doesn't work. It won't let me place it under Network Neighborhood in Windows Explorer. –  Lance Roberts Aug 13 '09 at 20:56

OK, figured it out.

Go to the 'My Network Places' folder, and double-click on 'Add Network Places', then just browse for the folder and hit OK.

Right click the folder. Click Send To, then click Desktop. Move that shortcut wherever you want it.

It won't move to the 'My Network Place' folder (though there already Folder Shortcuts there, so there must be a way). –  Lance Roberts Aug 13 '09 at 21:01
