Question: What is an DESKLINK File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an DESKLINK file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an DESKLINK file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .DESKLINK extension are known as Desklink Powertoy files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the DESKLINK extension, please let us know.

How to open a DESKLINK file:

The best way to open an DESKLINK file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the DESKLINK file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

    I became curious about the Desklink file sitting in the Send To folder and was wondering if these little things can be used to automatically create shortcuts to other folders e.g favourites.

    When you right click on a file you can auto create a shortcut to the desktop using the Desktop (create shortcut). Would it also be possible, I wonder, to create another desklink file that would allow you to right click on a file and send a shortcut to your favourites folder?

    Well after some experimentation it seems that the DESKLINK file is linked to the Desktop ONLY. So regardless of what you call it in the Send To folder, if it ends in DESKLINK Windows will send a shortcut of the file to the Desktop, that is pretty much all it seems to do.
