I wanted to add another shortcut to the SendTo menu on Win7, and trying to find its location was frustrating. I quickly found c:\users\<user>\SendTo, but it is a Junction Point. Junction Points seem to be second-class citizens, compared to Shortcuts... Shortcuts, you can right click, choose Properties, and find out where they point to; or you can click them, and Exlporer will take you to where they point. Junction Points give an error when you click them, and won't divulge where they point to.
Can Classic Shell help with this?

I'm considering making a set of shortcuts called "<jp>-real" that point to the same places, but then I wondered if Classic Shell could help with the traversal of Junction Points... allow a click on them to traverse to the target location.
