I like to see my folders etc. which are in Desktop. On eOS, I had to install the Desktop Folder app to do this. I have added that in the start up application list. However when I start my laptop, it initially shows the folders on the Desktop. However once I switch between workspace it is completely gone, even from the primary workspace. If I go to Applications and try to click Desktop Folder to run, it does nothing. I am using eOS-5.1.3 HERA on Lenovo X1 Carbon 7th Gen. Is there any way around to overcome this problem?

try rightclick on the desktop and then "Show Desktop"

  • Well, this does not work. However this is probably a known issue with Desktop Folder. See this: github.com/spheras/desktopfolder/issues/296
