Create Shortcut at Custom Location Easily with CreateShortcutThere

Creating Shortcut to file or folder is a frequently used feature in Windows. Windows allows to create shortcut in the same folder as the file or folder whose shortcut is being created. It also allows to create shortcut in Desktop via Send to > Desktop. So, if you need to create that shortcut in a custom location, you need to copy/move the created one to that location. This is annoying for those who use this feature frequently; for example, to create shortcut in start menu of portable executables. CreateShortcutThere is an application that can bring smile to many of you since it allows to browse for location to create shortcut.

My Verdict

The software cannot remember the last location of shortcut location, always selects the original folder while starting browsing. This limitation may restrict you to fully appreciate the usefulness of this application. So, there is a update patch that needs to be installed for such problem.
I am using this software for many years and will recommend you to do so.
