    Question Downloads shortcut missing!

    Hello folks...

    I'm facing this small problem with Lucid Lynx. Everything was fine until today, when the shortcut to the Downloads folder went missing! I don't really know what happened - I've done nothing to change the system files today - have not updated/upgraded/installed Ubuntu or any other software.

    The shortcut has disappeared from my Gnome menu, and Nautilus shortcuts tab. It has also disappeared from Gnome Do. The folder is still there though, and I can access through the Home folder.

    I tried restarting the system - doesn't help.

    Any clues? Thanks!

    Places > Home >


    right click [empty space] > make new folder > rename to "Downloads"



    Right click [Downloads folder] > make link >/or/>

    drag&drop "Downloads" folder while pressing [shift] key



    What did happen:
    case 1. you'd erase the folder
    case 2. you dragged&drop the folder in another folder

    Thanks, but this solution doesn't really put the shortcut back on Gnome Do.

    And it does not really explain what happened... No, I did not accidentally delete it or put it into some other folder...

    Actually, Alexan's solution works... In Lucid, its simple, open up Nautilus (your files explorer) go to your Home folder, drag the Downloads folder and drop it on to your sidebar. That'll make the shortcut appear on your Nautilus sidebar, and after a restart, it will be available on Gnome Do as well.

    Hope that helps...
