To set your folder options:

1. Open a folder, such as your Home folder.
2. Press Alt+e to open the edit menu.
3. Arrow down to preferences and press Enter.
4. This screen has a number of tabs including: Views, Behavior, Display, 
5. You can tab through the various options on each tab page. You may 
have to use the Orca line up/down commands to learn about folder option 
controls that do not speak. Using this method, you can set all of the 
folder options.

Also, look for a program called MintTweak. I installed it using apt-get. 
It give you control over various system options, including which system 
icons to display on the desktop.
