Use symlinks also on Windows with Junction

Not only in Linux, but also on Windows it is possible to create so-called “Symlinks”. A command line program called “Junction” makes this possible.

1. Download: https://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/sysinternals/bb896768.aspx
2. Via “Environment Variables” add the path to the PATH in Windows, so you can access the “junction” command from everywhere
3. Restart windows

Now use this command to add symlinks:

junction symlink originalpath
