Show My Computer, My Documents, and Trash

If you are/were a Windows user, you are used to having “My Computer”, “My Documents” and/or “Recycle Bin” icons on your desktop. Well, Ubuntu can do this also. Here are 3 simple sets to do this.

  1. Hit ALT-F2 and type: gconf-editor
  2. Select Apps > Nautilus > Desktop
  3. Check/uncheck the boxes for computer_icon_visible, documents_icon_visible, or trash_icon_visible.
