This question already has an answer here:
Since the day I installed elementary OS, I miss my classic desktop layout (files on your Desktop, not only blank space) and I'd like to reenable it. Does anyone know how to do that?
This here is probably against elementary OS's, or rather Pantheon DE's , thoughts but I worked with that layout since I started using computers, and I want to keep working with it. If there's no option, this might be an idea for Loki.
