Technical Support Tips: How to create a desktop shortcut to a folder or a document
It's recommended you save files to the M-Drive or the U-Drive. The M-Drive stores files meant to be shared. The U-Drive stores your work files for your access only. Both are backed up securely.
It's strongly recommended you do not use the C-Drive. Files saved on the C-Drive, including your desktop, are not backed up. Your work will be lost if those files are infected with a virus, deleted in error, or if your computer is damaged or lost.
Instead save your files on the M-Drive or the U-Drive and make a shortcut on your desktop.
To make a shortcut on your desktop:
- Navigate to the folder or document you want and right click on the folder or document.
- In the dropdown hover over the words "Send to" and another list will appear.
- In the new list click on "Desktop (create shortcut)."
The new shortcut will appear on your desktop.
