Just got this very handy tip from taktik that the renoise browsers, although it will not see .lnk files (the default shortcuts you make by right-clicking in windows) it can see Symbolic and Hardlinks which are available on NTFS formatted drives.
So if you want, you can create a folder of Symbolic Links or Hard Links that jumps to different locations on your hardrives with: samples / xrni
s / xrns , set this folder as one of the renoise browser presets 1 to 4 and presto! you have unlimited shortcuts in the browsers.
As these type of links are not GUI supported out of the box in windows (only command line) there is this app to make things easier here:
m unsure how this all works in mac and linux, though I guess its all still possible…
One of the differences worth noting between the two types is that Symbolic links work across hard drive volumes whereas Hard links are limited to the same volume. Worth reading up a bit to understand them better though.
