How do I modify the file right-click context menu to add "creat shortcut"?

Posted

I have just chosen Mozilla as my browser and want to add shortcuts to files by using the right-click context menu, but there is no "create shortcut" choice displayed.

Could you describe where you're clicking, exactly? Are you clicking on a web page, or clicking a link on a web page? If you are using Firefox to browse files on your hard drive, you're probably better off using Windows Explorer to do that since Firefox doesn't have all the functions of Windows.

I have used DeskCut for a long time, but now it won't work on any of my computers! I'm really frustrated. I removed and reinstalled, and even went into about:config and reset the preferences, then removed and reinstalled. Still nothing. I'm using Windows 7 and FF 10.0.
