    Here is an example of how to modify the quick links in your custom post type admin table list,

    add_filter( 'post_row_actions', 'modify_list_row_actions', 10, 2 );
    function modify_list_row_actions( $actions, $post ) {
    	// Check for your post type.
    	if ( $post->post_type == "my_custom_post_type" ) {
    		// Build your links URL.
    		$url = admin_url( 'admin.php?page=mycpt_page&post=' . $post->ID );
    		// Maybe put in some extra arguments based on the post status.
    		$edit_link = add_query_arg( array( 'action' => 'edit' ), $url );
    		// The default $actions passed has the Edit, Quick-edit and Trash links.
    		$trash = $actions['trash'];
    		 * You can reset the default $actions with your own array, or simply merge them
    		 * here I want to rewrite my Edit link, remove the Quick-link, and introduce a
    		 * new link 'Copy'
    		$actions = array(
    			'edit' => sprintf( '<a href="%1$s">%2$s</a>',
    			esc_url( $edit_link ),
    			esc_html( __( 'Edit', 'contact-form-7' ) ) )
    		// You can check if the current user has some custom rights.
    		if ( current_user_can( 'edit_my_cpt', $post->ID ) ) {
    		  // Include a nonce in this link
    		  $copy_link = wp_nonce_url( add_query_arg( array( 'action' => 'copy' ), $url ), 'edit_my_cpt_nonce' );
    		  // Add the new Copy quick link.
    		  $actions = array_merge( $actions, array(
    		  	'copy' => sprintf( '<a href="%1$s">%2$s</a>',
    				esc_url( $copy_link ), 
    		 ) );
    			// Re-insert thrash link preserved from the default $actions.
    	return $actions;
