I use IrfanView for batch processing the pictures I take with my phone.

I connect my smartphone to my computer, using the USB cable that came with the phone. This way, I can see in Windows Explorer the folders from my phone.

I wanted to create a shortcut, on my Desktop, to the pictures folder, which is on my phone. When I tried to drag and drop that folder, while pressing and holding the right button of the mouse, I only had 2 options : "Move here" and "Copy here", but no "Create shortcut here".

The solution I found was to right click the folder's name, choose "Copy", then go to Desktop, right click, and choose "Paste Shortcut".

I posted this in the hope it will help someone who tried the same thing.
