Right click menu in Nemo missing 'create shortcut' and 'copy/move to'

When you right click the file or folder in Nemo, there will be a + sign at the top. Clicking that will expand the menu and give you the options you want.

For what it's worth, I found this functionality at this link:




In LinuxMint 19.3's Nemo (4.4-4.4.2), you must now follow these steps:

  1. Open Nemo (Type Nemo into the Start Menu).
  2. Click "Edit" and then "Preferences" at the bottom of the drop down menu.
  3. A new window will open, left click the row item titled "Context Menu".
  4. You will now be able to add or remove context menu options. See the image below for more information:

I found this out after not seeing anything remotely similar to what other answers have provided for past versions of Nemo.
