Fix invalid short cuts

You can clean up your Desktop and Start Menu by removing broken short cut links.

Short cuts are a feature of the Windows operating system providing easy access to files and documents stored in your computer. The Start Menu is made up of shortcuts pointing to various files elsewhere on your hard drives. Choosing a short cut automatically opens its corresponding application or document. When the data linked to these short cuts are moved or deleted, the short cuts point to an incorrect location. These invalid shortcuts may mislead you and clutter your system. PC Cleaner scans your system for short cuts, and then looks for the files to which they are supposed to link. The software matches existing files with their previous short cuts and removes broken or unnecessary ones.

In the Fix Invalid Short Cuts screen, choose the Scan button to scan your computer for invalid short cuts.

After the scan is complete, choose the Remove button to remove the remaining invalid short cuts.
