When attempting to create a shortcut to another shortcut, Windows XP assigns the target of the original shortcut to the new shortcut. This happens even when I enter the target path manually, and I am left with a copy of the original shortcut. This is not what I want.
How can make a
.lnk file point to another
.lnk file directly? This form of double indirection would be very useful for managing shortcuts to files that move frequently.
