How to fix broken shortcuts and references

Have this ever happened to you? When you were trying to open an application, it returned the error message. In order to find the application, you searched almost every folder in your hard disk. What’s the worse, you still couldn’t find the software folder and reinstall the program again.

Shortcut is a small file which contains the location of the target files. It is usually placed on the desktop and windows start menu as the small graphic icons. Most of us may ignore that shortcut is the essential part of computer experience. It can make frequently used programs, files and folders become far more accessible.What causes the broken shortcut? A failed uninstallation, lingering orphaned files and registry conflicts are the main causes of broken shortcuts.
