Generally I really like Ubuntu 18.04, but one "feature" that I'm not a fan of is the notifications at the top of the graphical file browser after an event pertaining to files (copy, delete, etc.), ex:

enter image description here

Is there a way to suppress these messages?

Somebody in the questions asked why I'd like to suppress these messages. The reason is I find this distracting, and additionally it blocks the view of the files on the top row. This is a substantial hindrance when I'm moving many files around.

Further, anybody who has used computers much is aware that Ctrl+Z will undo an operation, so this message is really not necessary or beneficial.

  • Please explain why you would want to - particularly when the option to undo an erroneous selection is provided – 24601 Nov 3 '19 at 14:09

  • Don't get that. Ctrl-z suspends an action, not reverse it in Linux. – 24601 Nov 4 '19 at 15:46

    I can verify that in Ubuntu 18.04, with standard configurations, after an unwanted file delete, Ctrl+Z restores the file. – cdahms Nov 5 '19 at 17:26
