I have been used Windows 7 for a while. However, the right click New -> Shortcut that was not there. How I get it ?

You could try

  • Open the location containing the item that you want to create a shortcut to.

  • Right-click the item, and then click Create shortcut. The new shortcut appears in the same location as the original item.

  • Drag the new shortcut to the desired location.

Your issue seems like a faulty OS; There is a fix here (it appears it corrects the registry entries which it assumes must be wrong) although I have not tried it and would recommend creating a system restore point first!

Yes. Or, right-drag the icon to the new location. On releasing the right mouse button, you get a pop-up menu. – Mr Lister Sep 7 '12 at 9:56

There's also rightclick -> send -> to desktop, which will create a shortcut on the desktop. – SaintWacko Sep 7 '12 at 13:12
