in Ubuntu 12.10, there was File system which is Ubuntu installation drive, and Computer, which was opening "my computer" equivalent of Windows. Now computer drive showing file system and as I remember giving computer:// command in terminal was opening my computer. And I had added same command to custom shortcut which was working fine to open my computer. My computer view is better to use for me. So please tell me how can I open My computer equivalent of Windows in Ubuntu 14.04.

My brain just exploded reading this. Can you please post an image of what you saw on 12.04 and what you are seeing now in 14.04 for me to understand your issue. –  Luis Alvarado Aug 1 at 3:11
The question title makes sense. The body is still confusing. –  Pharap Aug 1 at 9:23
Looks like it's missing all the definite and indefinite articles. Bizarre. –  Poldie Aug 1 at 9:56
To reviewers: this isn't about 12.10. Read it. –  Oli Aug 1 at 11:43

If you want to Directly open "Computer" location, then run/type following command:

nautilus computer:///

Or by using Alt+F2, then type computer:/// as follows: screen

This will Show "Computer" which you want!

you can also use computer:/ only.

In the file manager hit Ctrl-L and then type in computer://

Note: computer:/// also works.
