Re: [Usability] Creating links on desktop

One other option is to middle click and drag the folder to the desktop.  Dropping it this way will produce a menu, which includes the option to create a shortcut.

I want to keep my file organized and want a link on desktop for quick

I have a file called 'todo' in that folder which i want to access very
frequently. So I create a shortcut for it on the desktop. I want to be
able to right click on the file and say "Create link > On Desktop" or
something like that..

You can create a link by holding down Ctrl+Shift and
dragging the file to the desktop.  Alternately, hold
down Alt and drag, and you will be presented with a
menu of possible drag actions when you release your
mouse button.
