Abstract

This disclosure describes a validation function that runs manually or automatically on a user-defined schedule (once a month, for example) that checks the data to which the bookmarks, shortcuts, or icons are pointing and ensures it is still valid. The user is then presented with a list and allowed to deselect any of these invalid pointers they would like to keep. The rest are automatically deleted.
