I'm on Windows 8.

I have some folders that contain .lnk files.


I would like to know if I can sort the files by the destination in the Details view column of the explorer. I can't find any detail attribute to sort .lnk files by their "destination" property.


How I could sort the .lnk files by one of these two properties?:

hard-to-read screencap showing properties dialog

Any suggestions?

You want the Link Target column.

Thanks, omg the original translation of "Link target" to my language in the windows explorer is too silly to find it. "Vincular destino", thanks again. – ElektroStudios Jul 21 '13 at 20:48
