How to Create a Folder Shortcut on Ubuntu

If you have ever used Windows, you know what I’m talking about. I was reorganizing my desktop and I decided to have nothing on it except a shortcut to my Download folder. So, I cleared it out, but I stuck at the point of the short cut. However I found it out pretty soon and I would like to share that experience with you. It is done in three simple steps:

  1. Right click on the folder you want to create a shortcut to
  2. Click “Make Link” on the context menu
  3. Drag-and-Drop or Copy-Paste the created shortcut to your desktop (or wherever you like)

Yes, that’s this simple. Great, isn’t it? and this is how my rearranged Ubuntu desktop looks now.
