To make you work more comfortable and reject you from duplicated task for file edit use symbolic links. It is quite easy – just use MKLINK command in windows!

MKLINK [[/D] | [/H] | [/J]] Link Target

        /D      Creates a directory symbolic link.  Default is a file
                symbolic link.
        /H      Creates a hard link instead of a symbolic link.
        /J      Creates a Directory Junction.
        Link    specifies the new symbolic link name.
        Target  specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link
                refers to.

Example:

  mklink someCommonFile.config C:\project\someCommonFile.config
