Creating Links
« on: April 03, 2020, 20:23:29 »
In Windows explorer, I very often use the function to create a link by dragging with the right button and then choosing "Create link". When I do this in MC, I get the error "creating links to files does not work yet". I read the answer from 2014 that Menu > Tools > File Links > Create Link.. does the trick. It does it alright but it takes a lot of clicks. I wonder why the function to create a shortcut file is not linked to the right drag menu when it is already in the code?

Because create links is in an extension and currently when you right click that is not accessible. I need to redesign some part to make it work.
I have it on my list, But I had more impotent things to fix. and it is very time consuming to fix and give very little so it been pushed down the list.
