Is there a way to use windows shortcuts in the open file dialog in SQL DEVELOPER?

I've tried finding the answer to this but, Is there a way to use windows shortcuts in the open file dialog in SQL DEVELOPER? I have shortcuts in my documents folder in windows pointing to the network directories where i keep my SQL files. SQL developer opens them like text files and not like SYMLINKs. Is there a way to fix this? Can i set up shortcuts or symlinks in windows that SQL developer would understand?

I do have a few workarounds but i would think you'd support normal file open functionality in windows. I did try and find this in the instructions but haven't found anything.

I did finally find the default directory in options/database/wporksheets and that helps a bit too.
