View Full Version : [all variants] Desktop view

September 22nd, 2008, 06:55 AM
Hi all,

I am interested in seeing if there is a tool somewhere online that might help me. I haven't had any luck finding one yet and all the forum threads seem to be about moving the home directory of desktop directory with symbolic links.

At the moment, the Desktop shows the contents of the Desktop directory in my home directory. Most of the time that is exactly how I want it. Sometimes, though, when I am working on files in one folder it would be great to be able to have my Desktop view show that view instead - sort of like having the Desktop view as a window to any location in the file system.

Yes, I use a file manager...it is just that it would suit the way I work to be able to change that view easily.

Does anything exist? I normally use Xubuntu but if such a feature was available in Ubuntu I would switch.
