Ubuntu – How to display “recent folders” in the sidebar of “Save as” dialogue


I was using 14.04 and upgraded to 16.04 yesterday.

In 14.04 I had recent folders on top of the sidebar of the Save as dialogue when I saved something from the net (Firefox if that helps). But that feature disappeared in 16.04 and I really want to have it back.

Here is a picture of what I'm trying to explain:
the save window in 16.04 without the recent folder on top
(the save as dialogue in 16.04 without the recent folders on top)

Best Answer

This feature has been removed by the developers.

As a workaround you may press alt+R when the Save as dialogue pops up. This should list recent folders you have used to save files.
