In Elementary OS 5.0 "Juno", by default the user can not have any icons on the desktop and does not work right click. To add additional desktop features, the Desktop Folder utility was created.
Desktop Folder is a tool running on the desktop. With Desktop Folder we can create new panels, notes widgets or photos. After creating these objects, we can move and lock them anywhere on the desktop, resize or change the color. The created independent widgets on the desktop have their own menu, in which we will also have several options applicable to them and access to create new ones.
Access files, folders and apps from your desktop
Drop files, folders, links and .desktop launchers inside panels
Resize, position and color panels
Display photos and keep notes on your desktop
Reveal the desktop with ⌘-D
Installation latest version into elementary OS: get it directly from the AppCenter
Once started, the panel will be active when the computer restarts automatically.. To create a panel or new folder, right-click on the desktop. You can also install in Linux mint or Ubuntu uses the latest .deb release, but I don't think you need it!))) May the Force be with you, Good Luck!!! desktopfolder
