I'm using Emacs and org-mode for a while now to organize my todos and notes, which are often linked to files on my local drive or network drives, so I'm often inserting hyperlinks to files or directories into my org-mode files, which is IMHO quite difficult, because I have to find the file/directory with Windows Explorer, then copy the path with PathCopy and then switch to Emacs and insert the hyperlink there.
I'm working with Windows 7 and Emacs 24.1.1. and I wonder what could be better and easier ways to do the same thing:
Access often used directories:
At the moment I have shortcuts to my mostly used directories in the windows explorer and I have a directory with Windows File shortcuts pointing to the most important directories to access them quickly, as network paths are often very long and difficult to remember.
- How could I use that in Emacs: access the directory with windows shortcuts to my folders or create a similar list of useful hyperlinks in Emacs?
- Which tools can be used to navigate Windows file systems (and network drives) with Emacs?
