I just installed eOS today and after 6 hours I am pretty happy with the environment while all of the tasks I feel so far I need to be able to accomplish have been covered. Question, in the Applications in the top left corner, two 'Files' icons-applications have appeared. The first one describes itself as 'Browse your files' while the second describes itself as 'Access and organize files'. What is up? :) I have attached a screenshot as well.enter image description here


"Access and organize files" is Nautilus. You can rename the icon in /usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop

    In Terminal: sudo scratch-text-editor /usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop. Then change Name=Files to Name=Nautilus. – cristian mos Dec 16 '17 at 9:16
  • Do I need nautilus? How can I remove it? It has ugly interface i.stack.imgur.com/APPFQ.png "Files" looks much better... i.stack.imgur.com/FKzUb.png – Евгений Александрович Dec 13 '18 at 22:46
