Convert .gdlink to actual Windows shortcut

It is possible to link within Google Drive to another folder with a shortcut. This is nice so you can quickly navigate between folders. However, syncing this shortcut results in a xxx.glink file, which serves no function. Opening the link results in going to Google Drive web saying that there is no example available. It would be nice if this would be automatically changed into a Windows shortcut to the folder specified.


Yes, that would be great. A simpler functionality but that would also work for me would be to just resolve the link and open it correctly in the browser.
