shortcut to a folder/directory

Thu Jan 21, 2016 3:13 am

I would like to put a shortcut to a folder at this path: /var/www/html/English/ministry

That way I can drag or paste files directly into the ministry folder from the desktop. Is there a way to do this? I have searched and read all around but cannot seem to find exactly what I want. I thank anyone for showing interest in helping!

I found this to be the easiest way:

1. Select the source folder in the File Manager
2. From the Edit menu select Create Link
3. Browse to the folder you want (in this case, the desktop) and select OK

Boom! Link created :D

Does this work for an external drive , i.e. USB hard drive on a powered hub?
