eOS by default do not allow shortcuts or files to be added on desktop. That's nice. I know there is a workaround to fix this. And I did and ended up with an ugly desktop.
Now, I have a better idea that I will like to try to implement myself. What if the application menu (aka slingshot) rearrange itself in most/last used app first, so I don't have to scroll via categories or alphabetically.
OR, populate plank automatically with last or most used apps, along with the icons forced to stay on the dock.
Edit: I am trying to hack the panel myself, GUIDE ME where to look at! -
Therefore I am not trying to post a feature request or a bug report, but I just want to ask if and how these changes are possible .
