How to 'link' folder under Extensions on Windows

Usually, I use Linux, but on my current computer, I have been having some issues so I have switched to Windows, at least for now.

I have a folder filled with my own extensions that I usually keep in a synced folder (Syncthing). On Linux, I put a symbolic link to this folder under ~/.local/share/SuperCollider/Extensions, and my extensions would show up in SC after my next class library recompile.

I am not sure how to do something similar on Windows. I tried to make a symlink via Windows Subsystem for Linux, and I tried making a Windows shortcut, but neither of these work.

Any thoughts on whether this is possible, and if so, how?

mklink command
