How to fix broken file associations

Glary Utilities logoIs your desktop full of broken desktop shortcuts that lead nowhere or can no longer find the program they used to be associated to? This can sometimes happen if malware has removed programs from your system or you’ve had a major hard drive failure and lost data. If so, Glary Utilities can help your recover lost links and ensure that your desktop shortcuts start working again.

Glary Utilities runs a comprehensive scan on your hard drive that actively seeks for broken shortcuts. If it finds some, it automatically tries to find the .exe file that it should be related to. If it can’t find one, it informs you afterwards which ones it could fix and which ones were impossible to do so. Not only that but Glary Utilities features a host of other handy tools such as cleaning tools for invalid registry entries, temporary internet files, analyse disk space usage and find duplicate files amongst others.
