Hi there, 

It seems you are having trouble with System shortcuts.

You can just double click the shortcut item then windows will analyze the missing file and try to find it itself by searching in all your local drives, If Windows cant find means it will tell you to browse and find the correct location of the .lnk file (link).

Just browse through the drives and locate the correct file and then click ok.

Windows will automatically update the address of the given file and add in the missing shortcut, and then the shortcut will become valid.

I hope my solution is clear for you, and this solves your problems with shortcuts.

Thanks
