Show and hide the network servers icon on the desktop
Like the disks volume, the trash, the home folder and the computer icon also the Network Servers icon can be hidden or shown again if needed by executing a simple command. To hide the network servers icon you can execute the following command inside a terminal window:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop network-icon-visible false
To show the network servers icon you can execute:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop network-icon-visible true
The change is permanent and immediate so doesn’t require any restart.
