Host: win10 - Guest: Mint 19.1 - VMware Workstation: V15

shared folder on host is 'K:/Shared Folders'. it is named 'Shared' in vm settings.

It shows up in '/mnt/hgfs/Shared' so I believe the installation is correct.

question is: What is the command to make a Link of it on the desktop or permanently mount it on a folder I created on the desktop named 'Shared'?

  • Using ln? ln /mnt/hgfs/Shared /path/to/your/desktop/ – Mathieu Apr 18 '19 at 9:22
