If you need to access certain files or folders quickly in Windows, you can help yourself by being able to easily create instant shortcuts to them. Here’s how:

– Go to the folder or file that you’ll need fast access to.

– Hold down Alt then drag it from a File Explorer window to the desktop (or anywhere else on disk).

– Right-click on it.

– Choose Properties to make changes to the new shortcut, e.g. the program it opens up with by default.
