After you have installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Desktop in VirtualBox, the first thing that you will notice is that Ubuntu desktop does not occupy the whole VirtualBox window no matter how you resize the window. To solve this we need to install VirtualBox Guest Additions.
The Desktop is the most common folder that we all have in our Windows 10 computer. I usually put a lot of files in there, sometimes even very important files, therefore it would be best to place the Desktop folder to somewhere it will be automatically backed up to the cloud.
Is it possible to change the location of the Desktop Folder in Windows 10?
Yes. We just need to change the properties of the Desktop Folder.
In this post, we will be moving the Desktop Folder to a folder that I created in my Dropbox folder.
To change the location of the Desktop folder follow the steps below. You can also use the instructions to move the Desktop folder to a different folder that you want or even to another drive.
Step-by-Step instruction to move the Desktop folder in another folder
Open File Explorer and on the address bar enter %userprofile%.
This will bring you to your user’s home folder.
Right-click on the Desktop icon. Then click Properties.
If you have been using Visual Studio Code, you might have encountered that if you have a folder that only has a single folder inside, Visual Studio Code will automatically collapse both parent and child folders into a single line.
Actually, if you have a chain of subfolders that have only one folder inside, it will merge all folders into a single line, as you can see on the image below.
I used to solve this by adding a dummy file or folder just to have a better folder structure, but even that is annoying since there are extra files that you can see that you do not need.
To solve this collapsing of the folder structure to a single line for single parent/child folder, follow the steps below.
If you opened your OBS Studio and added Display Capture, but you are getting a black or blank screen, stay calm. There is nothing wrong with your computer or OBS Studio. We just need to do some tweaking in your Windows Settings.
The reason why OBS Studio does not show your display is because it is selecting the wrong Graphics Card by default.
In my case, I have two GPU – AMD Radeon(TM) Graphics and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, and OBS Studio kept using the RTX 2060 when it should be using the built-in AMD Radeon(TM) Graphics.
