I am afraid I don't understand what you mean.

Just curious to who tried to make you think everything in Linux is a file?

Would you mind if I posted it as an answer? It could prevent too much work for others.

To the close-voters: I think it is useful to keep this question open. Someone else might make the same mistake!

comment Accidently deleted Home Folder
WOW, that is too much work!! You didn't actually remove the folder, only the Files icon from the launcher. You could have searched for "nautilus" in Dash, open it and simply lock it to the Launcher again. Appr. 5 seconds of work. A pitty I didn't see your question earlier.

comment Accidently deleted Home Folder
Not sure what you mean; I can hardly imagine you actually have no home folder. Do you mean the Launcher icon is missing / accidentally removed?

comment Ubuntu Chrome chrome://apps/
By default, that is impossible. I could however make an edited version of this answer askubuntu.com/a/577317/72216 which would mak new tab + the chrome command available with a keyboard shortcut. Would that do for you?

comment Open application window on the screen where It was launched
@Digiplace I noticed you didn't accept any of the answers to your questions. This could be because none of the answers worked, but also because you might not be familiar with the fact that accepting / upvoting an answer indicates it works for you. If this answer is working for you, like you mentioned in the comment above, I would kindly suggest you to accept it. It not only creates clarity towards the validity of an answer, but also might encourage other people to answer your question(s) in the future. Again Only if the answer works for you, but you specifically mentioned that above.

You mean in Dash? There should be no icon on your desktop.

@IonicăBizău you're welcome! Thanks for the question, it was fun to do. I made a small correction on the default setting explanation.

Is the visibility a big issue to you? In the first link, there is also an option to hide the application from Dash ("option 1").

comment Installing TeamViewer
Silly or not, I definitely have a 64 bit system, but installed teamviewer:i386 10.0.37742, since the 64 bit version didn't work. The 32 bit version works fine (??!).
