being unfamiliar with shortcuts. Are they different from symbolic links?
Can I create one of those?

Same functionality, different name.

Windows: "shortcut"
Linux: "symlink", "symbolic link"
Mac: "alias"

They all do essentially the same thing.

And the idea is that when you open them, you get the original, yes. That's
the point.

Thanks for changing quoting style!
