as you know MS windows "shortcuts" are not the same as linux "links"
unlock the lower task bar ( if locked , it is a very good idea to lock the "widgets" to prevent removing things by mistake )
r-click the tool bar
select "panel options"
select add widget
drag the "widget" called " Folder View"
make a folder in your home folder called " Links"
r-click the new folder view widget ( in the lower taskbar)
click on "folder view settings"
under locations add that folder called "Links"
then place the links in that folder
