I don't think you can add folders to the dash right now. Files isn't really a folder. It's Nautilus, the application. And it happens to open your home folder by default. The applications are just specified by .desktop files, so you could create .desktop files that launch Nautilus in the folder you want. These will then show up in the applications overview, and you can drag them to the dash. For example, to access your Vidoes folder, make a file called nautilus-videos.desktop that looks like this: [Desktop Entry] Name=Videos Comment=Access videos Exec=nautilus /home/cresnik/Videos Icon=system-file-manager Terminal=false Type=Application StartupNotify=true Categories=GNOME;GTK;Utility;Core; I'm assuming your username is "cresnik". Adjust the path if it's something else. You need to put this file in the folder .local/share/applications under your home folder. To get to that folder in Nautilus, press Ctrl+H to show hidden files. Once the file is there, GNOME should automatically add it to the list of applications. Then you can launch it or drag it around or whatever else you want to do. -- Shaun _______________________________________________ gnome-list mailing list gnome-list@xxxxxxxxx http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-list
