I have a directory of files and accidentally got two versions of the same document under different names, how can I create a symbolic link from one to the other, so that there is only one file, yet keep the duplicate link working since some might be using it? Ideally the link would be invisible, since it is only for backwards compatibility and not useful for browsing the files in the directory.
This is how I created a link:
In SharePoint select the folder you want the link to point, go to "Show actions" popup menu (i.e. the three dots icon shown when hovering over the folder) and select "Copy link" and copy the link.
Go to the folder where you want or need the link. From the "New" menu select "Link". In the popup window paste the copied link in the entry box below "Create link to" and press "Enter"
A file type "Link" will appear in the folder where you want or need the link.
