Just upgraded to Linux mint 17.2 cinnamon (unfortunately) I downloaded a video to downloads then I right clicked scrolled down and WTF? " Copy to" is missing! I'm not a drag and drop person. I'll erase the whole Os and reinstall 17.1 first. I want the copy to back with it's sub menu. Any ideas?

Hi airezenmaster and welcome to Bleeping Computer. :welcome:

Open File Manager, click on the Edit tab, select Preferences.

In the Preference Manager Window that opens, click on the Display tab.

Are there a couple of boxes near the foot of the screen under Move/CopyTo menu?

Checking them if they are unckecked will hopefully solve your problem.

airezenmaster,   :welcome:   to BC Forums! 

Looks by the various Topics & comments, that Linux MInt 17.2 was a rushed project, it affected MATE as well as Cinnamon, though my issues are different & won't hijack the OP's Topic with these. 


About your install, was it the only OS on the computer & a dual boot with another one, such as Windows? If that's the case, that OS can be fixed with a bootable partition tool, such as the Mini Tool Bootable Partition CD. It's an ISO file & can either be created as a Flash drive media with Rufus or Universal USB installer. Or burned to CD. 


Link to the Mint Tool partition bootable CD image. 




Boot to it, if there's a Windows OS installed, click on the drive & select Rebuild MBR, and the OS version will be shown, just choose the one for that OS, press OK or Enter, now at the Top of the screen click Apply. That should fix the first OS, if Windows was in the first position.            


Let us know if this isn't the case, or how it works out.


Good Luck! :thumbup2:

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
