My OS is Ubuntu 16.04LTS and I use XFCE as my desktop environment. I had tweaked a few settings to suite my experience. I was working on a java project using intelliJ-Idea and I wanted to open a folder from the IDE.

Check this screenshot Selecting Folder from with in IntelliJ. Immediately my desktop turned from this


this (notice that most of the items from the right click menu are missing).

I tried googling the problem and read on ubuntuforums.org that the only possible problem is xfdesktop not running but it was running. Does anyone have a solution(s)?
