John,

I’m running Windows 10 Home and it looks like Home doesn’t let you execute the 
mklink command?

You can also navigate to the WSJT-X adi file, create a shortcut and then move 
that shortcut to your DX4Win SAVE folder.

From his email:
I got tired of navigating to the WSJT-X directory every time I wanted to import 
my WSJT-X log into DX4WIN.  Fortunately, Windows 10 has a solution.  The idea 
is to create a symbolic link in your SAVE directory that points to the WSJT-X 
log directory.  The full instructions for creating symbolic links are here:

    https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-
symbolic-links-symlinks-on-windows-or-linux/

Here's the quick start:

1.  Start by opening a Command Prompt in Administrator mode.  From the Start 
menu, find "Windows System" and right-click on "Command Prompt'.
Follow the "More" link and then click "Run as Administrator".

2.  Determine the location of your WSJT-X log directory.  Here is one way:

    cd %localappdata%
    C:
    dir

    You should see a WSJT-X directory there.  The full path should look 
something like this:

    C:\Users\jjrei\AppData\Local\WSJT-X

3.  Now determine the location of your DX4WIN SAVE directory.  Mine is here:

    E:\dx4w903\save

4.  "cd" into your DX4WIN save directory:

    cd E:\dx4w903\save
    E:

5.  Finally, create the link.  Here is the command I used:

    E:\dx4w903\save> mklink /D WSJT-X C:\Users\jjrei\AppData\Local\WSJT-X

    (do not type the part *before* the >, only the part beginning with "mklink"

That's all there is to it.  The next time you want to import using "File | 
Import", you will see the WSJT-X link in your SAVE directory.
Double-click on that link, and you'll find your WSJT-X ADIF file there.

This is not limited to WSJT-X, you can create links to anything you want.
