Shortcuts Man is a shortcuts manager for the Windows operating system by popular software developer Nirsoft. The portable software program will automatically display all shortcuts of the Windows start menu and the computer desktop in its interface. Broken shortcuts are highlighted in pink making it easy to distinguish them from the rest. The shortcuts can be sorted in various ways, something that is a tradition in most Nirsoft applications.
Information that are displayed include the shortcut name, file path on the computer system, possible arguments, hotkeys, comments and several other interesting variables. The easiest way to deal with all broken shortcuts is to right-click in the program's interface to pick the option to select all broken shortcuts. This will check all broken shortcuts giving the user the option to resolve or delete them in one go.
Resolve tries to fix the broken link while delete will remove it from the desktop or start menu right away.
The program offers an option to create an html report that takes into account all or only the selected shortcuts. It is also possible to edit shortcuts. This will open the default Windows properties dialog with options to edit several properties of the selected shortcut.
Shortcuts Man is available for most Windows operating systems at the Nirsoft website.
