A few simple questions

Post by thcreations »

Hi,

I Just installed Linux Mint 7 KDE, and I have a couple questions.

1. I got the desktop folder that displays on the desktop just the way I like it and closed it thinking it would be simple to open back up. However (the newbie is showing) I cant figure out where it went or how to get it back.

2. I think the multiple desktops will come in very handy, Under multiple desktop setting's I was able to name each individual desktop. I am wondering where the names become useful. Is there a way to display them on their perspective desktops so you know where you are. or any other kind of indicators that can be used to distinguish which one i want.

Thanks
