Well, other than the fact that any X-specific questions really belong on
the cygwin-xfree list rather than the cygwin list, I'm not sure. A
"shortcut" in UNIX-speak is a symbolic link. It is possible to create
a symbolic link to a directory. So if you want to create a symbolic link
to the directory on your system containing X applications, you can do so
in Cygwin if that's your pleasure.
If this wasn't your question or you feel the need to discuss further this
issue, I recommend that you read <http://cygwin.com/problems.html>,
including the referenced article on "smart questions" and the descriptions
of the various email lists available and the topics they cover.
