We’ve had a few people over time ask for the ability to keep their bookmarks in Nemo’s sidebar in a dedicated section, rather than as part of ‘My Computer’ – now you can. Here’s how it works:
For new and old users alike, when you fire up nemo, all of your existing bookmarks will be where they always are, in the My Computer section:
At this point, any new bookmarks you create via menus (Bookmarks->Add Bookmark, for instance) are placed in a new Bookmarks section:
If you don’t wish to populate this new section, you can just drag that new bookmark into the other section, and the Bookmark heading will disappear, so this is completely optional to use. Drag and drop creation or rearranging of bookmarks is even simpler: just drag the item wherever you want it. If the bookmarks section is hidden, it will temporarily appear during the drag, so you can place items there if you want.
That’s all there is to it – no options to enable, just use it how you’d like, or keep it out of the way.
