By the way, to make a link to a document or folder, you can do both the link (the one made with right-click Make Link), and the launcher (choose location)
I prefer launchers, but unlike the links,
launchers have the defect that they don’t come with the arrow emblem.
To distinguish them from their original files, it would be convenient to have an emblem on launchers as well, and I realized that there is not any link icon among the default emblems.
You need to open Caja-> edit-> backgrounds and emblems
Click Add New emblem and click the link icon in / usr / share / icons / gnome / 256x256 / emblems.
After that, on the Side panel, click on the little black arrow and drag the emblem to the file or folder you want to mark (to remove it you can use the rubber or drag once again and switch it off).
