Right click on the desktop,
Go to:
Create New -> File -> Link to location.

Or in file mager drag a folder to the desktop with the left mouse button 
and choose "Create shortcut here" from the menu that apears when you 
release the folder on the desktop
Besides, I think Slackware sounds better than
 'Microsoft,' don't you ?
