Can't seem to figure that out :)  Tried right-clicking in the menu and no-go.

Thanks!

Hi lend27,

There are several ways to do this. What I believe is the quickest and easiest is via the terminal (if you prefer to use a GUI program, let me know and I'll tell you how).

Open a terminal (in the main menu click on the entry named Terminal or use the "three key combination" of <Ctrl><Alt>t and the terminal will open). Then copy and paste this into the terminal:

Code: [Select]
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop home-icon-visible true

Then press the ENTER key. Finished.
