    No Windows 8 files on Nautilus Toolbar

    I just installed 12.04.1 as a dual boot with win 8 and i cannot find the file partition for my Windows 8 stuff on the toolbar on the left side of the window. What do I do?

    There are two very different ways to install Ubuntu:
    1) From INSIDE Windows, using something called Wubi -- in which the installation is written to a virtual filesystem inside an existing Windows partition
    2) Booting from DVD or USB -- in which you create new partitions for Ubuntu and install it there.

    Without know which you did, we can't provide detailed instructions.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    AFAIK, it's impossible to currently install Ubuntu using Wubi on Windows 8 due to Secure Boot.

    The icons are usually near the bottom, if you can't see them, open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and do what Mr. Shannon wrote. Please remember to [code]enclose the text using these tags[/code]

    Wubi can't handle GPT partitioned disks, which are what you have when you get a computer with Windows 8 pre-installed.
    If you install Windows 8 yourself on an msdos partitioned disk then Wubi works just fine.
