I like to have shortcuts on my desktop, maybe part is nostalgia from doing so on windows, or also from using android.
figured it’s a lot of space I can use.
I also use the hotcorner to show desktop and was thinking of placing these near said corner.
I was thinking it would be nice to have an icon that behaves like android app folders
or like what happens when you drag a folder into the popular Plank dock.
preferably looking like this: https://imgur.com/EeLcyhn
found from here:
a vertical listing would be fine too. (essentially same thing as the app launcher applet, but can make separate ones and it goes on the desktop instead of on the panel).
you could either build one like the applet launcher, or have to manually set a directory with only shortcuts in it. (i really don’t mind manually doing it)
Here’s an idea, when you hot corner you show icons on desktop as well momentarily (can set how long) it fades out after. interacting with icons refreshes the timer. timer starts from last interaction with desktop icons (including hovering over them).
could do the same for when you press the show desktop icon.
