Add network folder to Windows Library

If you want to add a network folder to your Windows 8 libraries you’re usually presented with a dialogue telling you that the folder needs to indexed.

This is the workaround.

1. Create folder on disk. For example : c:\images

2. Delete folder

3. CTRL+Q to search. cmd as admin.

4. mklink /d c:\image \\server\images

5. Done.

Now all images are easily accessed from your windows libraries. Plus they get indexed.
