    Rename a Shortcut in the Startmenu per CMD


    Hello

    I would like to rename a Shortcut, wich is created by a Programm but I always get "not found" as reply. I have tryed it with a textdocument on the same place and this worked perfect. And the CMD runs as admin.

    Details:

    Windows 10 Enterprise

    Build 1903

    Program: Autodesk EAGLE 9.1.3 and Autodesk EAGLE 9.4.2

    Can someone please help me

    :)

  2. Startmenu not "updating"

    Hey,

    I got the following problem:

    • Newly installed Programs/Apps will not show up in the startmenu
    • Programs/Shortcuts I add to the Startmenu folders want show in my startmenu
    • Startmenu search won't find the new items either, even not if they are pinned to the startmenu

    What I have tried to fix my problem:

    • Rebuilding my search index
    • Reinstalling all windows apps, including cortana
    • Try to locate the issue with the System File Checker (sfc /scannow) ⇒ nothing found
    • Running the troubleshooter ⇒ returns "incorrect permissions on Windows Search directoriers"
      • changed the default Search folder where the index is saved
      • checked permissions for the Search folder (seems ok)

    What I think initially caused the error:

    • I switched from German to English on my Win10 PC
      • I then realised that a lot of my searchable windows settings still showed inGerman and not in English and were in addition not clickable anymore (nothing happended)
      • I could not fix the issue so I switched back to German
      • This made the Win10 settings searchable and clickable again, but since then my Startmenu seems to be stuck on its old index
    I am running Windows 10 Education with the Anniversary Update - which for me removed Cortana (maybe this issue is connected?)

    Any help or advise?

  3. Symlink shortcut changes when folder renamed

    Hi Toaster Ghost Burns Bread,

    I have recreated your concern by going through these steps. Please let me know if we are on the same understanding about the issue:

    1. On the Start menu, I typed %appdata% and then hit
      Enter.
    2. I created a folder under AppData and named it Test.
    3. Right-clicked the newly created folder and select Sent to > Desktop (create a shortcut) to create a shortcut.
    4. Renamed the folder to Test2.
    5. Go to the desktop. Double-clicked the shortcut and it was able to locate the renamed folder. (This is working as designed).

    Just to clarify, do you want the shortcut folder to not be able to open/locate the folder when you renamed it?

    We look forward to your response.
