After installing Ubuntu 11.04, I removed the Home Icon from the launcher by right clicking on the Home Icon and chosing the - Keep In Launcher option. Then it disappeared. Now I am wondering how do I restore it, because I think it was not a good idea and I need it now. Can anyone help me on this?

Open the launcher i.e. press super key and type nautilus. You will be presented with home folder open it and on launcher check on keep in launcher.


go to /usr/share/applications/ and drag and drop nautilus-home.desktop on the sidebar launcher and check keep in launcher
