comment I upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04 and forgot to copy one specific folder, can it be recovered?
It would be really really cool if you could share the steps you took for anybody including the OP and me to be able to do so too.

Testdisk may be able to recover those parts of your directory that was not yet overwritten (see this Q&A) - if that fails you may have luck to recover the content of some files using PhotoRec.

Windows will not even be able to find a undeleted partition created for Ubuntu... so how should it be able to recover?

comment Typing $ in the command line on Google Chrome
The location of $ depends on your keyboard layout (which?). Most layouts will have it on SHIFT+4 or ALTGr+4 but there are exceptions. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout

comment There is no menu buttons for GIMP 2.8 in Ubuntu 16.04?
Can't reproduce this here... all is as expected with both, single window and multiple window mode, and also with both, Ambiance and Radiance theme. What is your Gimp version?

comment boot repair of a Linux 16.04 (Ubuntu Mate) on a Intel Nuc
Can you tick "UEFI Boot" in "UEFI Boot Priority", and untick "Legacy Boot" in "Legacy Boot Priority" as shown in this example BIOS screen: communities.intel.com/servlet/JiveServlet/showImage/… - at least your Ubuntu installer USB should then boot in UEFI mode for furthrer repair.
