Step 1: Scan Shortcuts

Launch PCMate Free Shortcut Fixer and click "Scan Shortcuts" to choose the drive you want to scan. Click "OK" and the scan will start immediately.

Step 2: Select Broken Shortcuts

The shortcut files found will be listed with info like name, target, location and other details. The program marks the broken shortcut (when the files it is linking to are missing) with a red cross so you can spot it easily and solve the problem. Click "Select invalid" to select all the broken shortcuts. If you want to deselect the shortcuts, click "Select none".
