How to add 'create a link' to right click menu?

Here’s what I just did using the command line:

$ ln '/home/user/.emacs.d/init.el' '/home/user/.emacs'

I was hoping to be able to do that by right clicking on the source file from Xfce. How would I set it up that way?

In the right click menu there’s the ‘Send to > Desktop (Create link)’ option.
If you don’t want to send the link to Desktop, you can choose ‘Edit > Make link’ from the menu bar. If you want that option in your context menu, you can add a custom action as explained here.

You can create a link with a custom action, but you will need to cut/paste it where you want and rename it if needed.
