Hi Zion,

Red Hat Linux has nice command to make shortcut file. Shortcut file is called in Linux is Link file.

Two type of link files are exist in RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) 1. Soft Link 2. Hard Link.

The command is to create soft link is:

# ln -s < file name > [link name ]

Example:

# ln –s /etc/passwd /root/Desktop/password

Note:Here /root/Desktop/password is shortcut file for /etc/passwd.

Hi zion,

You can open a shortcut link of any file easily. You can use drag and drop method for this by creating a symlink inside the source files and copy (cp) that where you want it to put. So, you'll have to create a source link for the file. You can follow the example here:

ln -s /long/path/to/dir/original /path/myShortcut

Hope this shall help you.
Thanks.
