In Windows, it's comfortable to double-click the link/icon to a program (as opposed to using the command line). The problem is that the default links/icons for the GUI or daemon (
monerod) don't let the GUI or daemon use a non-default location of the blockchain.
I save the blockchain on a different, bigger drive. When I open the GUI or daemon with double-clicking the link/icon, it automatically starts to re-download the blockchain to the standard location. Can this conundrum be solved?
