Editing a symbolic link


How do I go about editing a symbolic link? I have a special directory used to start programs and in it are symbolic links to the actual programs. I want to disable a few of them without having to remove the link completely. This way it will serve as a reminder and will be easy to restart the programs again.

Thank you!

you can't disable a link, what you want to do is at a different level to a symbolic link.
