Universal Shortcutter is an absolutely unique and revolutionary program that allows you to create and manage shortcuts to files, folders, programs and drives, that are independent from drive letters. This means that files, folders and programs located on removable drives will be always found, even if the drive letter has changed since you created the shortcut.
For example, if you create a shortcut that points to the file "G:myfile.doc" and G: is a removable drive (like a pendrive or an external harddisk), very often happens that, expecially if you use more than one external drive, the next time you start Windows and connect that drive to your computer, the drive will have a different drive letter (say F: or H:); the result is that the shortcut you created before will no longer be valid, generating an error every time you try to use it.
Or you could decide to assign a different drive letter to your drives, having to modify all shortcuts you previously created.
Differently, if you create a shortcut using Universal Shortcutter, the shortcut will be always valid and working, because Universal Shortcutter creates links based on the real "identity" of the drive, not on the assigned letter of the drive that is "volatile".
The use is very simple and immediate as creating normal Windows shortcuts, and you will have no more annoiances caused by broken links between shortcuts and your files.
