creating shortcuts

Whats the best way to create shortcuts to folders? like desktop shortcuts. i have some folders i use alot buried in /home/... i have done it two different ways. i created a link to an application and a link and one to a url.
here is an example of what i typed in. for the url i just typed in '/home/jeff/junk/'. and for the link to application in the command box: 'kfmclient openProfile filemanagement /home/jeff/junk' . are either of these proper. they both seem to open with similar speeds. is one faster? Also what is the official name for these. im assuming they are not called shortcuts.

In linux shortcuts are called links. The easy way to make them is to drag the folder where you want the link and select [link here].
