Ventoy Menu Alias Plugin

With this plugin, you can set an alias for the ISO/WIM files. The alias will only be used to show the boot menu.
The alias can be in any format. Unicode characters are supported. Even you can set some special characters in the alias which are not supported by the system. For example : ? * / < > | are invalid characters for file name in Windows, but you can use them in the alias.

  • Json Configuration

Recommend to use VentoyPlugson, a GUI ventoy.json configurator. Refer VentoyPlugson

Use image and dir to set the alias for image file and directory.
