The last item in my contextual menu (right-click, Ctl+click) when a file or
folder is selected is ``Make Symbolic Link'' which will create a symbolic
link with the name ``originalname symlink'' in that directory. You can
change the name and move it wherever you wish after that. The command seems
slow but it works; I'm sure it's doing a ln in the background. I'm using

Does anyone else have that? Where are these contextual menu items stored?

Good Luck,
