Need help creating shortcuts from new app to desktop

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I am using Chrome on Windows 10.  Since my computer updated a few weeks ago and i have the new dropbox app, I cannot find a way to create a shortcut to my desktop.  I have seen others post this same issue, but don't see any answers yet.  

 

I used to be able to click on the file and there was an option to create a shortcut.  Now that is not an option.  However, i have old shortcuts that were created prior to the update, and they are still active, just can't create more.  

 

Any help apprciated.

If the previous shortcuts are still working, you can copy and paste those shortcuts in a new location. That should work. In Windows, apart from Create shortcut, there might be another option on right click context menu, Send to > Desktop (create shortcut). Do you see that option?
