I think it would be convenient to be able to quickly bring up a list of my most recently accessed files. This could be done by opening nautilus and then clicking on recent in the left panel, but I would like a faster way of doing it. One improvement would be to pass an argument to nautilus to have it show you the recent files when it starts up, analogous to how
nautilus ~ opens nautilus in the home directory.
But the solution to my problem doesn't even have to be a file manager. I think the optimal thing for me would just be a desklet that when I click it, a little menu showing all my recent files shows up. Is there a way to do this?
I have linux mint 17.1 xfce. I don't see a way to do it on the whisker menu. I tried some called cairo dock, which does an applet called "shortcuts", which you can right click on and a menu comes up, and one choice from this menu is to open nemo to show a list of recent files.
Is there any easier way to do this without the extra clicks? Again I think the easiest thing would be to create a launcher to a file manager with a command line argument to get it to show recent files, but I am open to any ideas.
