Impossible To Create a File or Folder Shortcut

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and i've installed the PRO version of Zorin.

Maybe I've missed it, but unfortunately I can't find the way to create a file or a folder shortcut on the desktop.

I've also tried to use the right click option "save as link" but an error message shows up.

Any help is welcome.
Thank you.

Phil. I just edited your post to make the screenshot image appear, instead of just a link to a file.
Are you on Z16 as this thread is tagged as such or Z17?



I think the issue is with pCloud. I left them behind a long time ago over privacy concerns. I now only use and I don't bother with links as I can do everything in the browser.

Hi, thanks for the support.
I'm on Z17

I'm currently at work and can't check my desktop, but am I wrong in thinking that you need to install gnome-tweaks to enable desktop icons on newer gnome versions?

This is something that I haven't done in a long time, so hopefully someone has a more concrete answer for you. But from my memory that was a change that was made, although I don't know when it was made.
