Can I change the typical Unity layout in Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (64-bit) so that I can launch folders just by clicking on their icons, instead of having to click on the icons, and then click "launch"? Because having to click the launch button every time is extremely unintuitive.
Also, what's the point of the back and forward buttons on the launcher? The only thing they accomplish for me is to cycle through the same folder endlessly. See this .webm: https://zippy.gfycat.com/MediocrePlaintiveIberianmole.webm
I use the Unity Launcher a lot, so I need it to immediately launch folders, especially the Downloads folders. I don't know why folder behaviour is different from program behaviour in Unity Launcher. The programs don't have a "launch" button, so why do the folders have them?
Any help at all is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
