Using OS X Mountain Lion
MACBOOK PRO - OSX ( 10.8.1)
CONNECT TO A DOMAIN SUBNET.
CONNECTIONS ARE SAVED
I would like to create an alias ( ala a windows shortcut) to the desktop to enable a user to quickly access a network share.
When I (right)-click the subject folder and select File | Make Alias, I get an error "An unexpected error occurred (error code -8060)."
Any suggestions greatly appreciated... MAC Noob

File > Make Alias is usually not the best way to make an alias because it puts the alias in the same directory as the original. Instead, Command-Option-Drag the original to the Desktop to create an alias on the Desktop.
