Creating shortcut from right click menu
  • Open parent folder or Pictures or the other folders - /home/user/
  • Right click folder Pictures
  • Make Link (You may need to press + - next to open - in order to show more commands)
  • Copy paste the new link into videos folder
Using terminal for creating shortcut

Code: Select all

ln -s /path/to/file /path/to/symlink
ln -s /home/user/Pictures /home/user/Videos
