Shortcuts Pool is system wide link retriever -- spawned from former shareware Windows Launch Center (the documentation in program folder still refers to it and the former version executable is also present inside the downloaded archive, so don't be confused). It is now free and portable (it keeps configuration files in program folder, but I haven't checked for registry traces). While some might find it provides trivial functionality, what it does, it does fast and well, qualities I really appreciate. So here it is...

Edit: Sorry, freeware after all. Launchcenter.exe is not.

Yep, that's why I wrote this: ;)

Shortcuts Pool lacks any kind of search function, which totally defeats it being essential -- but the file 'Shortcuts.sts' inside program folder is a plain text list of found shortcuts (see schema below), providing for a(n ugly kludge...) workaround.

BTW, files and folders can be dragged and dropped to populate the different categories, and the 'Recent' category is gleaned from %APPDATA%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\

Code:
<[Hardcoded Tree Category]>
File/Folder Name
File/Folder Link Path
