Windows Operating System provides the mklink command to creates a symbolic link.
The symbolink means the shortcut of the directory or a file.
MKLINK [[/D] | [/H] | [/J]] Link Target
/D Creates a directory symbolic link. Default is a file symbolic link. /H Creates a hard link instead of a symbolic link. /J Creates a Directory Junction. Link Specifies the new symbolic link name. Target Specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link refers to.
In my E drive I have a hello directory.
I want to create a shortcut into the D directory.
So, I’m using below command to create a shortcut for the directory.
mklink /J "D:\hello" "E:\hello"
NOTE: Here, I have used
/J because of I’m creating the shortlink for the directory.
