    Folder Shortcut on Desktop

    Hey all, I've been trying to figure out how to do this but have been unable so far. When I right click on folders there's no shortcut button and the Make Link button is greyed out. I'd just like to be able to make shortcuts to different folders on my desktop if possible.

    I'm running 12.10 with Unity.

    Thanks for your time,
    H2

    Try opening a terminal and typing

    Code:
    cd Desktop/
    then

    Code:
    ln -s path_to_folder
    substituting path_to_folder with the path to your folder.
