January 31, 2011 Leave a comment
Customer had reported to me that their Icons had dissapeard for the second week in a row on a Monday morning…
Weird I thought.
Maintenance Microsoft thinks..
It seems if you have more than 4 ‘broken’ shortcuts on your desktop Microsoft will clean them up for you.
Microsoft defines broken as a shortcut to unavailable resource.
I can see the value of that – in theorey, but imagine this – a customer with a laptop who links directly to shared folders on their corporate LAN, all those links are broken come monday morning.
Not _the_ best idea i have seen implemented in Win7.
Anyway, great article here for hints and tips on making the best of Win7 maintenance.
