Is there a way to add a folder to the computer list on my menu? I would like to add workbench.

I don't want to add it as a bookmark. I want it to appear in the same list as everything else.

    Move to? Right-click, hover over 'Move to...' and choose computer.

The closest I've gotten is to add a folder to the bookmarks. Navigate into a directory and press CTRL+D then it'll get added to a "Bookmarks" sub-list below Places.

EDIT: On second glance, it is available from the "GEAR" menu on the upper-right corner of the window.


Please follow the instructions outlined in this link - this solved the same problem I had.


gedit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs

Remove the list you do not want. However, once you login again, it will reset, so

echo "enabled=false" > ~/.config/user-dirs.conf
