Hello,
i have another problem with WB3.1, i just want to add some shortcut on Desktop screen by easy way (yeah i know things like Popmenu, Stopmenu) without some typing / scripting.

When use build in Leave out, its working way that file is target file is removed from original location, so its not shortcut, is file move, is not go there.

The Workbench desktop does not include functionality for creating shortcuts on the desktop – there is no such thing as a “Desktop” directory as there is in other operating systems. Workbench replacements such as Directory Opus 5 allows this, but the only icons that Workbench can display in the Workbench window are partitions, left out icons and AppIcons. It’s a different paradigm from other desktop environments and cannot be changed within Workbench.

For Workbench 3.5 and 3.9 it is possible to replicate the functionality of adding shortcuts like other systems using ARexx. The IconLink package on Aminet is an example of such a script.

    Thanks, i was quite sure that some workaround would be needed, so i hoped that someone wrote something for WB 3.1 ?
