This is a cool trick in Windows which most people don’t know about it. I found it very useful for user who wish to find the shortcut of a File in order to get to the Folder Path directory.
To know a where is a shortcut directory located, you can drag and drop the shortcut icon directly to your Windows command prompt. Then, the shortcut directory location will be displayed.
I think this feature should be available in older version of Windows, Windows XP as well as Windows Vista or Windows 7.
You can launch your Windows command prompt by go to Start >> All Program >> Accessories >> Command Prompt. (Or type “cmd” in the Run box)
