Re: Spatial Mode Window Cluttering and Possible Solutions

The whole point of spatial is to make everything simple. The addition of all the extra widgets makes it more complicated instead. We need to keep the direct association between window and folder.

icon list of the folder history which the user can drag the object to
and drop.

An added feature for reducing mouse travel would be:
When opening a folder which is a desktop link or in the places menu it
will have size and position history saved, otherwise new windows will
open as they do with the no_ubuntu_spacial option and with a default
