# Windows portable shortcuts to Library subfolders

librariesshortcutswindows

Is there a way in Windows 7 to create a shortcut to:

Libraries\Music\some_file.mp3


D:\Users\Myself\My Music\some_file.mp3


This way when I move my special libraries, or reinstall using different hd partitioning on a new system, I don't have to bother changing the shortcuts?

To add an environment variable inside the User or System/All section, click the New button and define for example a variable named MUSIC having the value C:\Users\Public\Music, then click OK twice.
With this environment variable, a file whose address is C:\Users\Public\Music\Sample Music\Kalimba.mp3 can be referred to as %MUSIC%\Sample Music\Kalimba.mp3.
