Show and hide the home folder icon on the desktop

Home icon on the desktopMany users prefer to adopt the desktop behavior like in GNOME 2 or others operating systems so they can still enable the classic desktop as seen on a previous article.

Like the disks volume icons and the trash icon also the home folder icon can be hidden or shown again if needed by executing a simple command. To hide the home folder icon you can execute the following command inside a terminal window:

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop home-icon-visible false

To show the home folder icon you can execute:

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop home-icon-visible true

The change is permanent and immediate so doesn’t require any restart.
