Sync your Desktop RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I just figured out how to make your desktop sync. At least in vista and 7 where the mklink command exists/works.

    Run the below command (you may need to right click command prompt and choose run as administrator before running it).

    mklink /D "%userprofile%\DesktopLink" "%userprofile%\Desktop"

    In windows live sync or mesh setup a sync folder to the DesktopLink folder rather then your direct desktop folder. Sometimes after browsing to the link folder it changes to the Desktop folder. Just manually rename it.

    Enjoy!

    Where I got information regarding mklink.

    As of today your post has 84 views, so it is being read, but nobody has responded to thank you - yet. I don't have a use for this, but I'm sure that others do and will find it cool and helpful.
