    If you're asking about toggling showing the desktop icons on or off I'm not sure how that could be done

    The most powerful shortcuts will be created using the terminal, I tried

    ln -s /home/neon/Desktop/index.jpg /home/neon/Pictures/

    where the first address is the location and file you want to copy and the second address is where you want to copy it to

    I'm not able to reproduce it, if I minimize firefox it saves the window size, and same thing if I close it.

    Hope this helps

    It could be the window manager too. I ran

    sudo apt-get install openbox obconf

    and then

    openbox --replace

    obconf can be used to change the theme

    Mint is pretty stable, for some reason it's not a distro I would personally use anymore though. You can try the icons, most likely they will work but some icons might be default mint icons. As for the themes if you mean Emerald, you would have to install it from https://github.com/compiz-reloaded first.

    for some reason i thought you did more themes for linux. as for mate cinnamon i'm loving it. been playing with linux on and off since at least 2000 just waiting for it to be like it is now. truly can't wait to see what the next 5 years will mean for it. the os drive my god currently 23 gigs used where to be at this point in win 10 would be a minimum of 50, and more like 60. while neon was nice dolphin left a lot to be desired as a file explorer. another big thing with cinnamon at least i have a actual computer icon that the default view is the drives, just need to figure out how to get that on the panel.
