Home Folder

Postby duncan222 » Thu Apr 11, 2013 11:12 am

I'm almost embarrased to ask this question but I am trying to put my Home folder on to the desktop.
I Can reach my home folder via the computer Icon but when I try to drag it across I get the message " you cannot put a folder into the same folder"
There is no option available when right clicking the folder to allow me to move it to the desktop.

Mint 13 Cinnamon 64

How about this:

Menu > Preferences > Cinnamon Settings > Desktop

Make sure "Home icon visible on desktop" is checked.
