  1. Enable navigator interface in Tracker preferences
  2. Create a folder on the desktop
  3. Double-click to open in a Tracker window
  4. The "up" button is disabled.

You can also open by opening your Home directory, double-clicking Desktop, then double-clicking the folder. The up button will be disabled, the back button will not be.

That is by intention: the Desktop is not supposed to be opened in a window. The Desktop folder is hidden by default, too, so you must have change that manually in order to see it in that window, did you?

I am talking about a subfolder of the desktop (e.g. "~/Desktop/someFolder"). Double-clicking on a subfolder of the desktop opens a Tracker window, and the up button is disabled.

But why hide it from users? Windows, Linux, and other OSes don't hide the desktop from being opened in a file manager window. It's quite useful actually - then you can view by list, etc.

But no, I didn't change any settings. Double clicking "Home" shows me "Desktop" as one of the subfolders, and from there I can hit "up". I only can't in a subfolder of the desktop.
