    Hello:

    Running XP.

    Just want to make sure that I understand this correctly.
    Have experimented with this, but seem to get contradictory results.

    Lets say I have a shortcut on my Desktop to some folder.

    If I move this folder to another "place," or place it inside yet another
    folder, does the
    shortcut on the Desktop "re-direct" itself, automatically, to the folders
    new location ?

    If yes, are there any exceptions to this ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    No, the shortcut won't change dynamically, as it points to an absolute path.
