Here I want to have upon activation of my wordpress plugins activation

How can this be done in code to add this Menu

Those are called action links. – scribu Aug 5 '11 at 2:24

Code extracted from my plugin, adapt as necessary.

add_filter( 'plugin_action_links', 'wpse_25030_settings_plugin_link', 10, 2 );

function wpse_25030_settings_plugin_link( $links, $file ) 
    if ( $file == plugin_basename(dirname(__FILE__) . '/many-tips-together.php') ) 
         * Insert the link at the beginning
        $in = '<a href="options-general.php?page=many-tips-together">' . __('Settings','mtt') . '</a>';
        array_unshift($links, $in);

         * Insert at the end
        // $links[] = '<a href="options-general.php?page=many-tips-together">'.__('Settings','mtt').'</a>';
    return $links;

    public function my_plugin_action_links( $links ) {
       $mylinks[] = '<a href="'. get_admin_url(null, 'admin.php?page=settings') .'">'.__('Settings', 'woocommerce').'</a>';

       return $mylinks + $links;

Adding return $mylinks + $links;, it orders the array

Your answer seems a little uncomplete. You should explain further what the code does and why it answers the question. – cybmeta Nov 27 '14 at 12:22
Sorry, but I don't have so much time. – Jorge Rodríguez Trías Nov 28 '14 at 12:44
