Create Link removed?

Post by Mintmag »

Hi there so I just decided to try the latest version of Linux Mint and I've noticed that the "Create Link" was removed from the right click menu. I'm just curios as ti why this was.

Nemo > Edit > Preferences > Context Menus - ensure Make Link is checked.

I don't know why, but it always has been hidden by default in Nemo. The way to enable it has changed several times over recent releases.
