Ubuntu's Unity interface is sleek, simple, and effective at keeping things uncluttered on your desktop, but some users may not be so keen on having to jump through hoops just to open one of their home folder's subdirectories in a real file manager. Luckily, there's a fix for that.
A quick and easy hack adds a list of your favourite folders to the right-click menu for the launcher's Home Folder icon, basically turning it into a "quicklist" for your entire home directory. Even better than that, the folders open in the Nautilus file manager — so you can start getting things done. Hit the link below to check out the quick instructions.
