Unable to make links to folders
Hi, Linux noob here. I installed latest Mint in Virtualbox (on Windows 7 host) and have managed to access shared folders. But I do not want to dig through the file manager each time to access them, so I want to make shortcuts to desktop.
I understand the way to (normally) make shortcuts to folders is to right click on it and select 'make link'. But the make link option is grayed out on most of the folders in the system. Only typically accessible folders like Music, Pictures, etc in user folder are linkable.
How do I make ALL folders in my system show the make link option?
