Powershell ~ Shorten Shortcut Names

Renaming Files

Here is something I just came up with. It is a really short Powershell one-liner to remove the annoying ‘- Shortcut’ from your shortcuts.

dir “*- Shortcut*” | foreach{ren -Path $_.Name -NewName $_.Name.Replace(” – Shortcut”,””)}

It is a good idea to execute it first with -whatif in the foreach loop.

Note: Be sure to be in the desktop directory when you run this.
