you mean: "right click", "new shortcut", "<enter path>", "<enter>".

Windows does not have hard links, only symbolic links, and like lepricaun said, to create a link, you simply create a shortcut. An easier way to do it (as in you don't have to type in the path yourself) is simply to right click and drag the file, then select "create shortcuts here"
The closest you get to a hard link in windows is just copying the file.

shortcut from the resource kit will do the trick.
i've searched for default tools (that are shipped with windows), but haven't found any, this is
suppose to be the way.

Actually, NTFS can have both hard and Symlinks that are
different from shortcuts.
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
