Create a symlink in windows

In linux servers,  it is practical to use symlinks when working on a directory that has to be called by third parties.

The linux command for symlink is:

    ln -s link_to_directory_you_want_to_link

In windows, you will have to simply do this

    mklink /J "path_to_directory_to_link" "path_where_to_link_it"
