[Solved] Create Shortcut

Post by Fredashay » Sun May 19, 2019 12:51 pm

I'd like to be able to create a shortcut easily.

How it should work is: when you right click on a folder in File Manager, one of the options would be Create Shortcut (or Create Symbolic Link to use Linux lingo) and then it would create the link right there that you can then copy wherever you want, such as your desktop.

This is one of the things I miss from Windows.

P.S. I use Linux Mint 19.2 with the Cinnamon desktop and Nemo file manager.

You've already got Make Link in your right click context menu, if you can't see it press the little + icon on the top right of the menu.

You can also drag holding the Alt key to create a symlink in the other pane or the desktop.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.
