I have lots of stuff in one folder and I want my Desktop to be clean. Is their a way I can still have the folder that has all my stuff in but not have it on my desktop or USB. I still want to easily access the folder but not on my desktop. Can someone help me or is this impossible?
You can move it to your Documents folder in the File Manager or you can use MV on a command line.
Hope this helps!
Depends on the Desktop you are using.
If the directory name starts with a
. it may not be displayed.
So if the directory is called
fred rename it
So if the file/folder is in the home folder, I think you have to do it in terminal. On desktop you can do it by right clicking it, rename, and rename it with a . Before the name.
(I go from Programs to .Programs)
In terminal it's a bit more complicated.
You have to do:
sudo mv /home/[yourusername]/[yourfile/folder] /home/[yourusername]/.fileorfolderhere
don't worry. I had the same question once.
