Accessing Folders directly from RUN in Start Menu

The common approach to open an folder using run dialog is to type the full folder address (for example c:/system/etc/etc ...), but using the above trick, you can do it with a simple keyword assigned to the folder.

How to?

1. Right click on the folder and click ‘Create Shortcut’
2. Rename the shortcut (for example: Rename ‘Shortcut to music’ to simply ‘music’).
3. Move the shortcut to the Windows Directory (Usually, it’s c:/windows).
4. Now, If you need to open that folder, you simply go to Start > Run and type the ‘shortcut name’
