LMDE 2 to LMDE 3

Will LMDE 2 automatically update itself to LMDE 3 when it's released?

If so, how can I prevent this from happening?

Re: Creating shortcuts

Have you tried File-browser -> Rt-click on directory -> Send to -> Desktop ? Hi & thanks for the suggestion ... but I don't have the option to "Send to > Desktop".

I have to go to the GUI Menu > Preferences > Sound to change the selected "HDMI / Displayport" to "Analog Output". When I list the sinks available...
