Problem with shortcut

Post by birstrack » Tue Jan 05, 2021 11:57 am

As in Oxygen 21 I also get warnings in Oxygen 23 when I search for directories for example to compare them or when doing a search "Find and replace in files".
The message I get is:

Problem with shortcut
The drive or network connection that the shortcut " refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again.

When I just click on OK several times The directory is found and I can go on.
In Oxygen 19 and 20 I never had this problem. Thus, what's different to 21 resp. 23? Do I have to set something in the preferences?

Kind regards, Birgit

Adding a reference to a similar post here:


Another workaround to removing the broken shortcuts from your Desktop is to download the Oxygen 23 kit bundled with Java 15 which does not have this problem.
