Ubuntu: What happened to the “Create Link” feature in Nautilus in Ubuntu 16.10?


I upgraded from 16.04 to 16.10.

I was surprised to see that the context menu entry "Create Link" no longer exists.

It used to appear upon right mouse click on a folder or file and allowed the user to create a symbolic link.


The feature still exists ... it just has to be activated.
Open Nautilus and go to Preferences -> Behavior.

Enable the Show action to create symbolic links option here.
Now you have the Create Link context menu entry in Nautilus.
