|Hi TC team
I think it would be great if Totalcmd could follow `*.lnk` shortcuts when doing Find Files under Windows. This is especially interesting when "Find text" option is on.
Consider this case:
|- I create the file `c:\repo\notes.txt` containing the word "Hello".
- I create the shortcut `c:\work\notes.lnk` pointing to `c:\repo\notes.txt`.
- In Totalcmd I step into `c:\work` and initiate Find Files (Commands -> Search).
- Search for: *txt
- [x] Find text: Hello
- [x] Follow shortcuts (<-- NEW OPTION, default is ON)
- Totalcmd should show `c:\work\notes.lnk` in Search results.
Hope that was somehow useful.
