Update to my post- I think this is somehow related to my earlier post about the "Files" Folder missing from my menu. Would that "Files" folder actually be a program or something that opens other things, like a memory stick? If "Files" is gone, then the maybe Mint just tried to use another prog to open it??? Help- I'm over my head!

It depends on your file manager in Debian it's nautilus & the command listed uder properties in main menu is "nautilus %U"

How did you loose it? You mean that you have lost that folder icon from the drop down menu list.
