Hello I work from home on my iMac often, my office uses a windows server, that I directly connect to via VPN in finder, there are many .lnk "windows shortcuts" files on the server that are used to navigate quickly around the server and from server to server. Will default Path Finder allow me to open these files most of them lead to folders on the server a few lead to a actual file?

    Hi Daniel.

    OS X doesn't support lnk shortcuts by default but you can try it with the help of WinShortcutter.
