Adding an entry to the Welcome-control is very easy. All we need is a feature and an elements-file for the feature. The content for the elements.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Elements xmlns="
http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
    <CustomAction Id="Add Link"
                   Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.StandardMenu"
                   GroupId="PersonalActions"
                   Title="Link to the create screen"
                   Description="Show the standard create screen.">
        <UrlAction Url="_layouts/create.aspx" />
    </CustomAction>
</Elements>

And that’s the result:

Easy, isn’t it?
