Provides an easy-to-read layout to access your places

Places Center

Places Center is a feature-rich, cross-platform Cinnamon applet that provides easy access to all of your most-used places.


  • All entries are file manager independent (which means that they should work for nautilus, nemo, and probably any other file manager as well)
  • Option to display all volumes, or just the ones that are mounted
  • Supports bookmarks (eg. from Nemo)
  • Supports additional user defined places
  • Easy to read layout with multiple columns
  • Ability to set the panel icon and text (symbolic icons supported)
  • Option to show recent documents
  • Quick keyboard access (default super+p)
  • Search tool that allows you to quickly search for files and folders (supports regular expressions)
  • Add middle click to open

I have been using it successfully for several years. A very good and necessary applet. Thank you! But after updating to current version (on the date of writing the post) I observe situation:

- there are several mounted disks; if click on the "triangle" icon in applet to unmount one of them - all mounted disks become unmounted.

Inspect on two machines (with Cinnamon 3.4.6) - similar situation.

I'm not sure what could be causing the issue. It works fine for me on the latest Cinnamon. I haven't made any significant changes in a while. Certainly nothing that would be related to unmounting drives. Do you see it in Nemo and/or the removable drives applet (included with Cinnamon), or is it only happening with my applet?

Please disregard my previous msg. Everything's fine.

I deleted some directories from Home but they're still showing in Places Center.
Is there a cached file I could delete? Or how could I refresh?

BTW, I use a vertical panel layout and Places Center works perfectly.

It works in vertical panel for me. Did you make sure it was completely up to date first? It was only added recently.

Great addon, but unfortunately doesn't work in vertical panel layout.
